You'll want a new pair of leather gloves and a really good pair of pliers. High tensile strength wire is hard to cut and really stiff, makes it difficult to get a good tight roll on tie offs and splices.

It is a total pain in the butt to work with high tensile wire.
We build fence for a living and I refuse to use it due to its impossible to make nice ties.
Not worth the savings to deal with the headaches.
