Famous for 2 qualities:
- Has a very thick outer coating of zinc (Class IV). So it will last up to 10 years without rusting in humid climates.
- Low tensile strength. Therefore, it's very easy to wind, unwind, cut, tie and join. MaxiShock allows simple, conductive, long-lasting connections without any tools other than side-cutting pliers.
Note: Pre-wound option includes a SupaReel spool. Carry and wind-up handles sold separately (see under accessories below).
- 10 years probable life*
- Use for: Permanent fences
- Color: Silver
- Size: 1.7mm diameter
- Portability: Good
- Conductivity: 19 ohms per 1000 ft (lower number is better and more conductive)
- Coating: Zinc
- Ability to be seen by animals: Poor
- Breaking strength: 160 lbs
Less expensive per year of use than farm-store polywire and tape because it lasts so long.
- Attach a terminal insulator (T posts or wood posts insulators available) to beginning/end post. If fence section/length is under 1000 ft, you can attach MaxiShock directly to the terminal insulator at this end.
- Unroll MaxiShock along the fence line. (Using a SupaReel™ makes this easier.)
- Insert line posts.
- Attach insulators at desired heights on line posts and remaining end posts.
- Insert MaxiShock into insulators.
- Attach P Spring to end post and loop MaxiShock through the P Spring - just once at this point.
- By hand, pull MaxiShock tight until the P Spring is half compressed.
- Cut MaxiShock with wire cutters or a strong pair of scissors leaving about 4" to work with. Loop MaxiShock through end of P Spring again and wrap remainder tightly around fence line to secure.
- Use one of our SupaReels to rewind and store MaxiShock.
- Install and connect energizer to a ground rod and the fence.
- Turn on energizer.
- Check to make sure voltage is over 2000V.
*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).

Easy to install and looks great.

We have an existing three board wood fence and goats routinely escaped from the pasture. We installed the MaxiShock and the problem was solved. Even the little goats are kept inside. Premier1 Customer Support was awesome in helping us order everything we needed.

Just installed this maxishock wire. It was easy to work with and appears to be better than the locally available single strand wire. Time will tell if it will last the 10 years that they say it will, but it looks like it will outlast anything else I could have purchased locally to use.
This wire is a pleasure to work with, can be twisted by hand etc. It also carries a shock! extremely well. Animals that always 'tested' the fence flat don't anymore-cows, sheep, lambs and horses, the dogs dno't bother it either.
