Made from high strength, corrosion resistant Tpye 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. Often times when a shark strikes bait,they twirl violently. This motion can kink single strand leader wire and can actually be more destructive to your tackle than a fierce bite. 49-Strand resists kinking, wrestles back and allows you to hook up and haul in.
