Pikesafe is a brilliant pvc coated soft wire. It is not normal to use wire for catfishing but you may need to if you are fishing a water with very high pike population or fishery rules dictate use of wire with livebaits. Very easy to make traces simply twist the wire and heat with a lighter to seal. Also ideal hooklink for Pike & Zander due to its supple nature. It is not suitable for catfish over 50lb. Breaking Strains available: 25lb on a 15m spool.
