AFW or Nev's will be your only option now, I think. AFW is thinner for stated breaking strain, but that's about all that separates them. Both are reliable in my experience.

agree with bill absolute crap ends frayed easily and also had one trace snap you wont go wrong with nevs in 30lb for bait fishing,the 60lb is much thicker but have used it without any issues

I had issues with it early doors last year and had to borrow traces from another pit member whilst I was on his boat, binned it off after that...

Heat it before cutting to stop ends fraying. Same with AFW and Fox (which are same thing from same factory I am led to believe by a Foxy dangler)
Love the hit!
