Not to get into a huge debate here, but to offer some empirical data instead:

Some years ago, we erected an 80 meter loop antenna system at W6GO.  
Originally, the antenna was made of FlexWeave, and it did not survive 
very long.  It was later retrofitted to CCS wire and has remained up in 
the air for several years, through very high winds and "El Nino".

Given the applause for FlexWeave from many quarters, it MUST have been an 
installation error on our part...  ;=>

Take this info in the spirit in which it was given.  73!
