Long lasting, 6mm (1/4") dia. braided rope conductor for permanent electric fences.
Tinned copper filaments (2) run along the inner core. First-quality braided polyester and 12 stainless steel filaments provide support. This method reduces the stress on the copper filament, increases strand strength and provides more metal-to-metal and metal-to-animal contact points throughout.

Polyester, the same plastic filaments as in EnduraSoft® 6.0, is noted for its strength, soft feel and inherently high resistance to UV light degradation.
Black/white alternating color increases effectiveness by offering contrast to animals against both light and dark backgrounds.

- 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.

Durable in all weather. After a few years the rope looks and functions like new. Delivers a good shock too.
