My second time ordering this. Works very well and is light weight so doesn't sag too much between posts.

Over the years I have used different brands of polywire with mixed results. This year I started using Intellitwine 2.25. When I test an intellitwine fence, there is almost no difference over a 3700' single strand fence. I have never seen this with any other polywire.

Very workable portable fencing.

After much hard use, some of the Intellitwine I purchased in 2007 is now mostly worn out, six years later! That's a year longer life than I expected. Some of that twine even survived two major ice storms without breaking. Some is still in service and in pretty good shape. Highly visible to our cattle, lightweight enough for a woman to carry around, and hot enough to stop a ton-plus bull in his tracks, as long as it is kept hooked to a good hot charger this product works as advertised. I use it wound onto the mini-reels to divide strip paddocks into daily rations for several different groups of cattle, including some mobs of fifty cows this year. Would like to have mini-reels that are less likely to break, however.

Great product. Have dozens of 1/4 mile reels in use many more than 10 years. Probably the best all around product we have used in more than 25 years of portable electric fencing. Much more visible to livestock than back when we (like everyone) falsely thought orange was good. Durable yet light weight enough to put post 60' apart and move a flat 1/4 miles section including posts in under a half hour with supareels.
