by Oberst Good wire for rigs
I've been using .35 Malin wire for working up 6 to 24 ounce sinker rigs by stringing together 6 and 8 oz egg sinkers. Never had the wire fail, and it doesn't kink if you don't leave any extra wire between the sinkers. Molding up these sinkers myself with free lead makes these heavy deep-drop rigs dirt cheap. I've been using 150-175 pound black swivels on both sides of the rig. I can drop a 10 inch menhaden or mullet down 200 feet with one of the 16 ounce rigs, if Gulf current isn't too fast. I then run a mono or fluor leader off the rigs with an 8 to 10/0 circle hook.

The #12 can hold a 30 pound channel cat tight and his chompers won't even knick it.

I used these on last tournament in Destin, FL and had mixed results. I had several fish break the leader and I checked for kinks before each use. I did step up to the #5 wire with better results and nearly same hits.

Went out to the west coast looking for new fishing grounds. Rigged up a #5/0 live bait holder and a #4 swivel and let it go. Ten minutes later 25lb of shark.
I like this leader for two reasons:
1- It is easy to work with since I make my own leader.
2- It holds up under pressure.
During my trip, a boat went over my line and hooked up the leader. Pulled it free and continued to use after straightening it out with my Du-Bro Wire Straightener. Would definitely recommend.
