Some do. The idea is to provide a sharp leading edge like a stay would.

Frequently they rust. If you decide you want this have them use a very low stretch line (like spectra) instead. You won't save much money over wire, but you won;t have the rust problem and the sail will stow more easily.

We've flown them with wires and without. We prefer with.
