i know nothing about this stuff. how does it hold up to being grabbed rubbed by lines, poles, bungie cords over say 10-15yrs. the average life of stainless wire? Is this a good material for the long haul? I can see its usefulness in racing, can it last in a typical weekend/cruiser? Seems like a cheaper and stronger material...maybe a good option? As you have recommended it, have you used it? if so, how did it hold up for you?
