In conjunction with racoon netting, I ran a single-strand like across the top of a wooden fence to keep furry climbers away from my grapevines. Simple to use and it works like a charm.

This is by far the best poliwire on the market for the price! I have used lots of other brands but this poliwire carry more current and last much longer than the cheaper store brands. I run miles of this stuff every year to divide pasture and its so much easier to repair and reuse than any wire.

I can't believe this simple twine will stop the cows from coming up to my pool to drink. But it does!! They will stand there looking longingly at the pool but not come any closer than a couple yards. And it is so easy to install. I was concerned that I would have difficulty installing an electric fence, since I knew absolutely nothing about it, but this was a breeze. Had it up and working in just a matter of hours. What I like most is you can hardly see the twine. If it were not for the standards (I used fiber rods) you would not be able to see it from a distance. My neighbor, who has a fence with solid wire, saw mine and immediately asked where I had got it so he could change his (which is pretty ugly).

I installed this almost nine years ago, for a semi-permanent fence. I only use one strand to keep my horses where I want them. They break it from time to time when our sandy ground gets dry and they don't get enough of a shock, but the fact that it does break also makes it safe if one gets tangled up (rare). I just repair it by tying the ends with a square knot. So after nine years, rather than the predicted five, I'm thinking it's time to replace it, but even with all the knots, it's still working!

Still by far the most user friendly portable fencing made when used with reels and step in posts.
