This has become the main conductor used on our farms. Much more visible than standard electric wire and easier to install (doesn’t try to “re-wind” itself). Last winter became caught in the fence (as evidenced by the hair left behind) and it broke the rope (a rare occurrence). We were able to mend the break by simply using a RopeLink 2.0. If you’re fencing specifically for horses use the 6mm ( 6mm Rope, EnduraSoft, IntelliBraid) or tape conductors.
We run miles of electric fencing, and I have strip grazed using various electric tapes and ropes for many years. To be honest, most of these conductors are pretty robust and will take a little abuse. Intellirope is no exception, and it is more tightly spun than some of the competitiors, which makes it very easy to work with. We use some for fences that are moved monthly, and some for a "permanent" fence, and it's doing a great job in both applications.
My only quibble would be on visibility. The riope is predominantly white, and the black strand does not stand out as well as a 50-50 contrasting combination would.
