Good/Cheep Wire Tested!

We had A LOT of Bluefish Action at BoneClave 2001. A while ago I had bought some "Jewelry Wire" at JoAnns Fabric Store, but had not yet tested it. The brand name is "Tiger Tail." It is braided SS with a nylon coating; the spool is like a tippet spool; it has 30' of wire & I think it cost $1.99. I would estimate its strength at around 30#. Well, it held up Very Well to Bluefish. I think I landed up to 6 fish on a single peace & the fish ran from 5-9#. The failures we did have occured at the knot between the wire & the Mono! Also, it seems fairly low Vis.
