Good wire Make my own leaders instead of using pre-made like everybody else. I can then adjust length and add/subtract snap/swivel and add/subtract size of snap/swivel. Tend to leave the swivel off b/c some fish target swivel instead of bait/lure. Disappears much better in water than black pre-mades and is much thinner. Albright Knot works well for attaching to mono/flouro but double up lighter mono before tying. May kink a bit easier than some flexible wires. May 24, 2012
Overall good wire I've been using this wire for almost a year now. I have tried the 93 pound wire and it has worked great for small sharks. I did however have a problem recently. I have 50 pound big game line on my pole and I got snagged and was trying to break the line. Instead of the line breaking the leader actually broke. The line is very easy to twist into a leader and an overall good value. April 15, 2012
Excelent quality. This dark 80# test stainless wire is stiff enough to allow me to build my multiple hook troling rigs to run true in the water. I start with a 7/0 hook with a chin weight, then a side/back hook for the ones that don't take my whole herring. The wire twists well, rolls tight, and breaks clean so there is no sharp edge. If your needs include rigging hoos for troling rigs like mine, I would reccomend you give this hard wire a try. March 26, 2012
good product just started using this wire,it seams to form well,and feels strong enough to hole up to a heavy load..made afew lures ..cant wait to try them out March 22, 2012

A: 
I use a haywire twist, then a tight roll of about five wraps. I break off the end of the wire flush with the wrap. This eliminates the use of a crimped sleve.

Hope this helps.

A: 
This leader is a coffee or brownish color. It should blend in very well with the bottum and structure colors under water. It seems to work well for me. That does not mean much since these Minnesota prairie lakes are very muddy during warm weather.

To my knowlege the only other choice is a bright silver color if you are after toothy fish.

A: 
That is the size that I use for Pike. It is a darker coffee colored wire and disappears very well.

As far as working with it. Get a "Du-Bro E-Z Twist Tool" or similar tool and you can make just about anything that you can imagine. With this size wire and with the much heavier 130# -180# test leader I make everything from spinner and buzz baits to rigs with multiple spinner blades and dressed treble hooks or other hooks for bait. The tool that I use is an earlier version of this twist tool. Instructions of how to use the tool should be with it.

With the 31# wire is is also easy to put together rigs with swivels and hooks by just twisting it with you bare fingers and maybe with a pair of pliers to hold it. This is illustrated on the package that it comes in. The Malin wire leader is intended to be bent and twisted and it is nice to work with.

A: 
it pretty easy to make knots with 31 pound test leader. unless the pike and musky you are going after are relatively small, i would definitely use a stronger leader. (35-40lbs)

Is it more like bucktail/spinnerbait wire?

A: 
The heaviest leader is about the same as spinnerbait wire but it is not spring steel. When you bend it it stays bent untill you straighten it. I like the dark finish because it does not reflect the sun.

A: 
It's more flexible/springy than the usual spinnerbait wire, but that's not really a problem. I have used the 0.024 size to make small (approx. 1/8oz) spinnerbaits for ultralight trout & panfish fishing; no problems. However, if you're making larger lures for bigger fish you need something stiffer than that so I would definitely use a one of the larger sizes. It would still be springier than the standard stuff, but would handle and last just as well if not better.
