- 25 years probable life*
- Use for: Permanent fences
- Color: White/black/white
- Size: 6mm (1/4") diameter
- Portability: Fair
- Conductivity: 41 ohms per 1000 ft (lower number is better and more conductive)
- Ability to carry a charge: Very good
- Type of conductive filaments: Tinned copper & stainless steel—makes this 400 times more conductive than stainless steel polywires
- Number of conductive filaments: 3 tinned copper & 3 stainless steel
- Ability to be seen by animals: Very good
- Type of non-conductive filaments: Polyester—more resistant to ultraviolet light
- Ability to resist mildew: Fair
- Breaking strength: 1800 lbs
- Attach a terminal insulator to end post.
- Tie end of rope to terminal insulator.
- Unroll rope along the fence line.
- Insert line posts.
- Insert rope in the line posts at the right height(s) for your animals.
- Attach insulators (preferably notched PI 21n) to corner and end posts.
- Tie rope to terminal insulator and spring at far end post. By hand, pull it tight enough to eliminate sagging between posts. Tie off by hand, or use a RopeLink. (Note: If the run of the fence is 1000' or more, use a P Spring at both ends of the fence instead of 1 end.)
- Use one of our reels to rewind and store rope.
- Install and connect energizer to a ground rod and the fence. Turn on energizer. Check to make sure voltage is over 2000V.

*Probable life is not a warranty by Premier. Why not? Because we know that longevity is highly dependent upon, but not limited to, quality of installation, insulator(s) used, rope tension, animal/wind/snow/ice/vegetation pressure and UV exposure (altitude and climate).
Listed below are recommended optional components. Your particular situation may require alternative recommendations. Please call and talk to our fence consultants if there are any questions at 800-282-6631.

I used to get IntelliBraid, but tried this one instead. Definitely easier to handle and not so hard on one's hands. Not sure how long it will last or how much shock the horses will get since there is less wire involved in the braid.

This is by far the best electric rope on the market. It is strong and provides an eye-appealing appearance. I just installed new fencing where we moved, but my previous installation is standing strong after over 15 years.

The best fencing on the market. I have used this fencing for over 19 years for my horses.

Soft to touch rope. Easy to use, install & move if desired. Does not cut horse when they get tangled in it even after it has been in use for while. I have used the electric actual rope type fence, but rope seems to get crusted lime on it from weather on it which when a horse kicks &or gets tangled in it, it cuts horses pretty good. This seems to allow the water to run off the rope & doesn't crust on it. Used for pastures & drylots & works well. Highly recommend the Endura Soft Rope.

I think this Endurasoft is the ultimate in rope fencing. It is soft and easy to put up, lasts for years and years (I have some that is 20+ years old and still working great even with trees falling on it from tornado) and I am confident in its visibility. I have a horse who just had eye surgery and one eye has limited vision, yet he seemed to see this rope just fine. I have built many a fence, both permanent and temporary using this rope with little or no help and I am a 62 yo female. Just use the P-springs and you are good to go! Highly recommend!
