I use FiberRods to add support between permanent posts of the ElectroNet. I also use them for marking tree seedlings that I don’t want to mow over. And a few times I have used to keep an angry rooster in-line. I really like these things.

We are big fans of these Step-In FiberRod Posts. Sometimes you buy something and its obvious the designer has no intention of using the product. This is not the case. The posts are lightweight, can be hammered into rock hard clay, and no broken foot plates yet. The clips are very hard to get on but can take a lot of tension without slipping. We are using these with goats. Not sure if they could handle our cows plowing through without breaking. Will be our new go-to post for summer rotations.

There are two problems with these posts:
- In hard soils, the occasional tread will slip down the post instead of the post entering the ground. Once it slips, not even superglue will get it to hold in place again.
- Harp clips. They have terrible retention on small conductors, and it’s near impossible to get large conductors into them. You can’t use spring clips of rod clips because of the fat ball on top of the post. The plastic used on these is superb — molded on clips would be ideal, but even just omitting the top ball would be a step in the right direction.

These are extremely rugged posts, far better than anything I’ve bought elsewhere. I am curious about the durability of the harp clips, since 2 out of 90 broke as I was putting them on the posts, but in general, I’m very satisfied.

I’ve used a lot of different step-in posts over the years and these are the best by far. They don’t get tangled together like pig tail posts and they are lighter in weight so you can carry more per trip. They step in easily and the plastic cap allows you to hammer in (if needed) without having to carry a separate protector like with a traditional fiberglass post.
