Masons for me. Yes after a few scraps it may curl a bit but it's still perfectly good to use.

As for fraying, i believe you mean when you cut the wire?
If thats the case then ensure that you cut the wire in the throat of the scissors not the end you'll get a nice clean cut.

And as already mentioned sleaves or a small piece of shrink tube on the tag end will seal off any fraying and the sharp point(s).

The best thing about Masons is you can take the curls out with your fingers, from '80's Tide Cheater and Marlin Steel through to todays wires only Masons allow you to do that.
Its the reason why I have regularly caught 5or6 without needing a change.

Depends on the presentation I want....

Fishing waters where I don't have any issues getting takes... Nevs ti wire.
When I want more finesse..... AFW surflon micro supreme 7x7 knotted.
