Yes, the practical sailor editorial that was cited in the second post as well as the others who have found 25 year old untinned wire in fine condition makes me question paying several times more for tinned wire.

I did end up going with the marine tinned wire because I didn't want to be the guinea pig. I think the question of tinned or untinned is valid though.
