Malin Trident-7 Wire Strands for Rigging
Good product, but wish it would specify which single and/or double type sleeves work best with the product, or include adequate sleeves with the leader.

Great Product!! Will use again
I used the 170# 7 strand for shark leaders. I caught a 40lb Bullred, 10; and 8.5' scalloped hammerhead, and several large rays on this line with no issues. One spun on the wire and twisted it pretty bad. A few minutes with some pliers and it was back in the water. The sleeves that it came with were barely big enough to use, which seemed like should be perfect. I did have to cut it on an angle to get it through twice. My only complaint would be that it didn't come with enough sleeves, but a trip to BPS on the way to the beach solved that problem. I did tape the end near the hook per instructions from pro sharks hunters. To avoid that, I will likely buy the nylon coated stuff next time. This stuff held up great and was easy to rig.

Malin Trident-7 Wire Strands
This is some of the leader wire I have ever used. I like to fish for red fish on the NC Coast and use this leader all the time. I use 20 lb test and have caught red drum up to 10 lbs using this leader. I use a figure 8 knot to tie to the barbell swivels and to my hook. The leader is like using 15 lb mono, it’s that flexible.

Ordered 4 spools of the 1X7 60 lb and each spool was 8 feet short. Bass Pro made good with no problems, however never heard from Malin.
