I've been using Endura Soft for a permanent deer fence for about 15 years. I recently bought another roll for repair work. The fence didn't wear out but accidents with mowers and controlled burns have required some patching that used up what was left from original installation. Also adding a 4th ground wire so the fence is effective in snow used up a lot. Repairs only require tying the ends, it is soft and easy to handle. The deer seem to easily see it.
I had one strand of Endurasoft tied to a 6ft T-post. Long story but the Endurasoft got pulled hard enough to snap the T-post clean off where it entered the ground without any damage to the rope. It hasn't been up long enough to see how it holds up to our winters, but everyone who sees it loves it. So soft but really carries the electric well.
Seems to work.

Fantastic product! Originally bought Endurasoft 5 years ago for our first horse pasture - when we added a second pasture this spring, we didn't even consider another product. Our original fence from 5 years ago still looks brand-new and we've had no issues with it (we've had trees fall on it - other than the post connector breaking, the fence line itself held). Very easy to install. We use 3 strands and the horses have never had an issue with it - the black/white visibility is great during the cold winter months and very easy to see in the summer too. Will continue to purchase in the future.

Very soft rope, easy to handle.
Rather low twist on the strands, so that some nodes form when one strand twists up on the other two.
Durability is TBD.
