AFW 49-Strand 7x7 Stainless Steel Shark Leader WireAFW
American Fishing Wire 49 strand fishing wire is the first choice for shark and big game anglers looking for a tough but flexible wire for traces and rubbing leaders. This is a 30ft (9.2m) spool. Made in the USA.
Corrosion resistant type 304 stainless steel 49 strand (7x7) wire cable providing excellent kink resistance and bite protection. This is the best quality wire available, and the first choice for shark fishing and other big game toothy fish. AFW wire will outperform and outlast non-marine grade alternatives.
Often when a shark strikes a bait, they twirl violently. This can kink single strand leader wire, making it more destrictive to your tackle than the actual bite! Our 49-strand wire resists kinking, wrestles back and allows you to hook up then haul in.
NOTES: The 400lb and 480lb wire is ideal for UK porbeagle shark fishing.
