Best trellis wire gauge?

In the beginning we used 12
gauge galvanized wire for trellis support because someone had given us
what was left of a roll.
After several years of
experimentation I'm ready to say 14 gauge wire is easier to work with
and seems to be more than strong enough.
I might switch back to 12
gauge if our rows were longer, but we don't have any large scale
orchard plans like that.
