*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.

My neighbor's alcoholic son drove through my beautiful high-tensile fence four years ago, stopping only when he hit the foundation stone of the corn crib on my historic barn. He managed to tear up all the wood posts, and ruin the fence in the process. Over time the fencing along the creek was destroyed as well because I was never able to repair it to its original state. I had thought I would put in a proper wood horse fence and keep my smaller livestock out of the area, and then I stumbled on IntelliRope online. It was cheap (in comparison), I could use existing t-posts and insulators, although my local feed store's connectors and tighteners are not good enough--buy those from Premier when you buy your IntelliRope. I don't think it took two hours to re-string the entire pasture. I have had no problem with my horses and the deer apparently do not jump through it either. I only have two strands. I will be creating rotational grazing out of my bigger pasture whose fence has been ruined by deer and erosion of the creek bank, running first the horses and once I can get the grass short enough will run my goats in there to eat all the invasive autumn olive and multiflora rose that have grown in the few years I haven't use that pasture due to deerworm which is a serious issue in that pasture. I am a complete convert. I will be putting it in all my pastures and create more no-hassle temporary grazing areas. In the end, because it's so adaptable, the savings in feed will more than pay for the IntelliRope. I wish I'd known about this years ago. It is much better quality than the equivalent product our local corporate feed store, Tractor Supply, carries and cheaper.

Works very well. Thank you!

I purchased this product to divide a large field into several paddocks for my horses. It was simple to install and I was able to get it nice and tight without any special tools or a lot of strength. It’s been up for a couple of weeks now, horses respect it and it is safe for them. I expect that this will last at least several years, I was pleasantly surprised by how well made/durable it seems to be. Would recommend and purchase again.

IntelliRope 6 is not only stout, it withstands animals running through it occasionally! It's heavy enough to be strong, the black AND white make it easy for the animals (cattle and horses) to see it in both snow conditions and against a grass/soil background (some competitors have orange/white. Not sure animals see orange as well as the black). I've used it for YEARS for cattle and horses.

This electric rope is very easy to string and we finished roping off a new pasture in just a few hours. Our animals respect it and we never worry about it not carrying a charge. We've had a tree and a deer hit the rope and knock it down. No damage done to the rope at all and we put it right back up. It's easy to see and shows at night too. This is much better rope than what they sell in our local feed store.
