Reply to "30AWG Teflon Coated Wire Available Soon"

I like the solid wire since it is easier to form into a shape and have it stay put.  I can route it away from pinch points and it will stay there.  I don't worry about the current carrying capability of the stranded wire versus solid wire cause my LEDs are running at such a low frequency (not much of a skin effect).  I would advise against using either magnet wire or teflon coated wire in applications where fret abrasion or physical pressure is a concern.  But you can always slip shrink tubing or other insulation over the coated magnet wire for extra protection if there is a pressure point. 

Stranded wire or flex circuits are better in situations where there is movement.  The solid wire will fatigue and eventually fail.
