Default Snare Wires: CONFUSED!

Okay. Ill try and keep this short. I have a Pearl Free-floating Piccolo snare that needs it's snares replaced.
During a gig the sucker popped. About time too considering they were the stock snares that came with the drum.
I'm so confused as to what snares to choose from due to the massive range and how many wires would be best.
I went onto the Puresound website and apparently a pearl free floating piccolo snare is a vintage snare drum? So according to them I have to choose from their vintage range. I'm not sure why that is.
Any help in finding the right snare wire for me would be greatly appreciated.

Ive attached pictures of the snare to hopefully help you guys to help me =)
Many thanks,

You can get replacement free floater wires from Hydes mate (I see you're in the harbour city!!). If you're set on Puresounds, then just remember the FF's take a longer than standard wire i.e the wire will actually extend past the edges of the drum on both sides.

.... you 'can' use standard length snares on free floaters also.
