American Fishing Wire 49 Strand Fishing Cable Made from high strength- corrosion resistant Type 304 stainless steel- 49-Strand 7x7 cable provides excellent protection against Shark and other big game toothy fish. This cable provides excellent kink resistance and bite protection. Oftentimes when a Shark strikes a bait- they twirl violently. This motion can kink single strand leader wire and can actually be more destructive to your tackle than the fierce bite. 49-Strand resists kinking- wrestles back- and allows you to hook up and haul in.
