For permanent electric fences. Has 3 “cables” of twisted polyester strands into which 3 tinned copper and 3 stainless steel filaments are intertwined. Because it is made of polyester, EnduraSoft® 6.0 is soft to the touch and is more resistant to ultraviolet light than even the best polyethylene.
Very good conductivity (50Ω/1000 ft), so it’s suited for any length of fence line and nearly all energizers.
Which conductor is right for you?We offer a wide-range of electrifiable ropes, twines and tapes to fit your situation. Visit this link to compare all Premier conductors.
Adding energized strands to any fence helps protect animals from a fence, and the fence from animals—because they won’t chew or rub against it.

- Attach a terminal insulator to an 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. (See recommendations below.)
- 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 a wind-up reel system to rewind and store rope.
- Install and connect a fence energizer to a grounding system. Turn on energizer and confirm voltage is at least 3000V at the end of the fence line.

We use it on our permanent fences for horses. Easy for the horses to see, soft in your hands when installing, has lasted 11 years now. Conducts electricity well, and we have sandy soil. Our wide tape has outlived its lifetime so we're replacing it with more Endura Soft rope. It's easy to work with.

This is a very good rope. I have some that has been in use with no problems for 19 years. I have also used the intelli-rope and infinitely prefer the endurasoft. Holds up much better and conducts better as well. Worth the slightly higher cost.

Used for last 5 years on very large pastures; dividing pastures and 48x48 drylots. Horses do not seem to receive any injuries when situations occur & coming in contact with fence. I use 3 strands, all hot at heights of 26"; 37 and 50". Easy to repair; soft to touch and very easy for 1 person to install. You can also take down & reuse as needed. If you have good ground & fence charger, this will definately give them a good "shock" if touched. I find it better than the electric rope that I have used for many years as the rope has a tendency to become very hard with scale from rain deposits where as this does not. Had the rope fence (when hard & scaled) damage a horses leg ALMOST as bad as what the high tensile did. I have had no cuts from this fencing-though they have come in contact with it & pulled it down occassionally. Total of 25 horses on this fence in individual drylots all winter; 20 acres of pastures divided with approx 5 horses/pasture. Very satisfied & will continue to order as needed.

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.
