If you're going to go with wire, then bare wire is the way to go. The coating really does hold in the moisture. Plus, because of the coating you can't see the corrosion until it's too late. Mechanical end-fittings are now available, so you can do it yourself and save some money. There are some newer fittings on the market (Hi-Mod) that seems to be simpler to use. All the mechanical fittings are reusable, too.
Low stretch line is a viable alternative. All the necessary end-fittings are now available for line, too, and splicing isn't too much of a challenge (Brion Toss is a good resource.)
