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!

I used it once last season, and thought it was terrible. Tied one trace with it landed one pike with it, the trace was absolute mess, if the pike would of put up a decent fight it would of no doubt snapped the wire. Got home and chucked it in the bin.

Think some of you are on about something totally different it’s been off the shelves for years and definitely won’t have messaged up traces

You're right, black spool, black wire, it's years since I had it. I had 2 traces snap in the middle on the cast, I never had any other wire do that. Binned it straight away after that. It's lack of reliability has been discussed on a few threads here over the years.

Have tried Ti wire for bait traces and I don’t see it offering anything from a fishing point of view over normal 7 strand wire. I know it lasts longer but that’s it

Shocking that video Craig....

The longevity of Ti wire is what works for me Mark.... No faffing changing traces etc. 4 traces lasted me all season last year. (nevs TI wire).
Love the hit!

Did anyone ever manage to replicate that test?

I bought a spool of 40lb Esox Ti, then saw the video. It was because of the video that I never did use it, but I did absolutely mash the hell out of it with pliers and forceps and no matter what I did I couldn't get it to break like the stuff on Youtube :neutral:
