I have a bulk spool of Sevalon 27# test coated 7 wire.It is copper colored stainless. I think it will work very well.Very flexible and holds a knot well.I would trade wire for some finished harnesses.I have been using it for years for wire divers.

How long are your harnesses, how far apart are your hooks, do you ever use 2 blades on a harness?

I cant speak for everyone but my hooks are about 4 inches apart and as far as blades I have tied a bunch of double blades but since I don't have a lot of confidence In them  they don't see as much time in the water as my single blades  ( not saying they don't work everything has a time and place ) I have a regular program and when I start to change that fishing is slow. I fish late June to September around Barcelona and run 6 rods 4 harnesses ( a lot of gold ) and 2 rapala taildancers ( purpledecent and a custom painted wonderbread ) sorry to be so long winded but I hope this helps...

Why couldn't you use wire fishing line, like we use on dipsey rods?

You can. I’ve tied several with 30# dipsy wire. I usually get several seasons out of them. When the hooks need replaced I cut them apart and re-rig them. When I use wire I use aluminum crimps on them.
