Dyform and Compact Strand
 
I'm a newbie here and getting my ducks in a row and learning as I go and restore my vessel which is a work in progress. Can someone explan the difference between Dyform wire and compact strand. I've heard many explanations:
1)They are the same
2)One is a brand name, the other is a description of the wire
3)They are totally different and not alike at all!

Which one is it? I know there was a company called Bridon selling Dyform wire. Was this their product name for compact strand? Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the reply! So the Dyform was simply the product name coined by Bridon and the term compact strand is the type.
