Depends on the length of your wire and the direction of it and the signals you want to hear. Once you get above half wavelength long that wire antenna will have lobes with gain and nulls with losses, the number of those lobes/nulls increasing in number and getting narrower as the antenna gets longer and longer. Over a wavelength long and some of those lobes can have several dB gain and nulls of -30dB.

So you'll find comparing it to the Cobwebb that depending on the gain of the lobes and their direction the long wire may hear a particular station or part of the world better than the Cobwebb but in directions where there's nulls in the longwire's azimuth pattern the Cobwebb could slaughter it in those directions - possibly hearing signals at a S5 or higher level which are completely invisible on the wire.
