For anglers specifically targeting species with razor sharp dentures, such as mackerel, sharks, wahoo, dogtooth tuna and the like, wire is necessary to avoid high tackle losses. Swimerz 49 strand wires the is the most commonly used cable in higher breaking strains, and can be used for a variety of applications including leaders on larger trolling lures (especially metal headed skirted lures), for attaching a second hook in a shackle rig used in resin-head skirts, and for single and double hooksets.
As its name suggests, 49-nine strand wire is made up of 49-nine individual strands of wire. The individual strands are much smaller in diameter than those found in 7-strand wire. It is made up of 7 lots of 7 strands twisted together to make up a single length of wire. This gives it greater flexibility than other wire types and a high level of resistance to kinking. Included in every pack are a number of brass crimps, used to secure Swimerz 49 strand wire.
