Using it for plugs, the 1mm, I think, for the smaller ones and 1.6, I think, for the bigger ones.. Not wrapping but looping the wire back on itself and casting it in lead. Haven't pulled a wire yet with drag on lock down and big fish, but have pulled wires on commercial plugs so strong enough a finish for purpose.

The wire is softer than the wire they use in pencil bait wires, think that is a welding wire, which others also use for throughwire, easier to bend than that wire..Too soft for making clips out of, but perfect for lures. Cheap as..
