Would anyone be interested in bulk spools of AFW Surfstrand Micro Supreme 49 strand (7x7) uncoated stainless steel wire? Choice of 13,20,26,40 and 65lb
These would be imported direct from the producers in the USA with all costs shared equally and copies of all documentation provided.

Not talking about micky mouse 5m spools but serious commercial spools, enough to last anyone 30 plus seasons.

I am prepared to act as the facilitator with another member acting as importer and distributor.
not for me thanks Mike but much appreciated!

(Got plenty to be getting on with face)

i was a massive carboflex fan, i was using it years ago, i've still got some left!
i did switch to the new Fox wire, the 49 strand stuff, and it is bloody good! very supple, lasts more than one fish, doesnt kink easily either, the only issue is it can fray when cutt so needs heating before you cut it, other than that its the best for me, it will replace my use of carboflex ( which i will miss )

The surfstrand micro supreme is the stuff you want Ratty.... ;o) Like Carboflex but more supple and less pig tails.
Plus knottable and camo coloured. You generally get a few fish out of each trace.
Love the hit!

Fox 49 strand is the same as surfstrand micro supreme.
