Default Wiry hair/hand stripping

I really love Border Terriers. They are one of the breeds I've been contemplating, but unsure if I could ever get used to the wiry hair and having to handstrip a coat.

I feel like it'd be lower maintenance than Jackson but to be honest? He's really low maintenance for the most part since I keep him short and get him professionally groomed every 8-10 weeks. And I admit, I loooveee his soft to touch silky hair.

I cannot stand when he starts looking straggly, but my question is - I see a lot of BT sites say to hand strip 2x a year, but does the dog just like a shaggy mess in between? And how common is it for a groomer to offer hand stripping, and I guess I'm just confused by it. lol.
