Goldfoot Springsteel Pigtail Posts
Galvanized springsteel post from Strainrite® Fencing Systems. Thick plastic insulation resists UV exposure. Jumps back into position if a person or animal bends the post over.
New! 40.5" post offers added height to contain goats, or jumpy cattle and sheep.
Holds one conductor. If additional conductors are needed, clip-on insulators may be added.

In very dry/hard soils, drilling a pilot hole in the ground may be beneficial. You can also wet the soil at the location you plan on using the post to first soften the ground.
These posts are best used as line posts with gentle curves. They are not good to use for sharp corners.

I spend roughly an hour per day moving polywire for our 600 head. I have been doing it for many years. I think these are the best posts made and I have tried many different ones. Years ago Gallagher sold a lighter version of these and I liked them very much. Now they are heavier and even better and for an excellent price. Basically these are a little nicer than the Gallagher heavy duty and a lot cheaper. I just bought 400 this spring. In my opinion the non-springsteel posts sold at Premeir 1 are the worst post you can buy and these are the best.

So far so good...only had about 2 weeks now, but they seem sturdy and well made.

So far so good. Dramatically better than the prior pigtail.

I point the ends for ease of use in hard or frozen soil. Excellent posts with strong footplate and good stiffness to resist too much flexing.

Well constructed and the springsteel rod allows applications around curves, etc.
