Well that's handy. When I needed stainless wire for a rush job at the weekend I found the spool had fallen apart. It has been stored maybe 15 years iinside n a dark dry cupboard with the rest of my consumables. The plastic is like chocolate. The rest of my reels are fine. Has this happened to anyone else? Any brands that slower users of wire might want to avoid? Don't know which this is as I cut the middle out to 5kg size.
