Stainless wire rigging condition

Well I guess in all my years of sailing I have never lost a piece of rigging so it makes me a little nervous. I have an old guitar I beat on allot less than I use to but the strings are three years old and if that is any indication of how metal can be streched and left under a constant load well maybe this is a good test. I don''t have a tuning pipe large enough for this wire anyone have a Tuba.
