Why to use it

Superior Tactile Feedback:1
* Unique proximal spiral-cut PTFE structure enables firm grip on guidewire shaft for steerability and comfortable handling

* Distal 25 cm of the original Radifocus^® Guide Wire M gives you the M Coat™ performance you trust2,3

Improved Crossability:1
* More pushability and kink resistance with extra-stiff proximal shaft, even in complex lesions1

Improved Platform For Interventional Devices:1
* Stiff proximal Nitinol shaft provides additional device support1
* Proximal spiral PTFE coating limits surface contact within catheter lumen, reducing friction and improving trackability over the guidewire1
