Review RateIt’s goodI can’t find the start in the roll
Review RateI will be purchasing more in the future.I really like how easy the wire is to install. I had used a tape type and it was not very user friendly, twisting tangleing no such. This is good and is also a strong conductor.
Review RateI love this fenceThis fence used to be carried by my local store. I purchased it when we first got horses and it lasted for a very long time. I eventually decided to replace it and that local store was no longer carrying this brand, so I got what they had and have regretted it almost immediately. So I found this online and will never order another brand of fence. I use it for my horses and my goats. It's easy to work with, strong and reliable, and it's priced right!
Review RateGreat valueI purchased the poly wire for my goat fencing. I think the price was good and it was shipped and delivered quickly. Although I have not installed it yet, a friend of mine uses it and directed me to Zareba to make my purchase. It works great for her.
Review RateVery good fence solution, but I prefer the 9 wireThis is good stuff. The buy 4/get one free deal is nice. It ties well and delivers the charge well. When you get the spool, the end that is loose can be hard to find, and it is usually fused to another wire so you may lose a couple of feet :( Very easy for my cows/pigs to see, which is good. I think the 9 wire is better, though I'm not sure it's worth the cost upgrade (maybe 75 bucks).

POLY WIRE / POLY ROPE
Features and Benefits
- More visible than traditional wire
- Convenient to install, repair and rewind
- Will not rust
- Temporary fencing
- Rotational grazing
- Controlled grazing
Poly wire is a good fence choice since it is more visible than traditional metal wire, lightweight and installs easily. Poly wire is easily tightened, spliced, repaired and rewound. In addition, it can be re-used again and again.
Use a poly wire tightener to maintain wire tension as needed.
This convenient wire can be used for temporary grazing, strip or rotational grazing and pet control. Poly wire should not be used with continuous output chargers
Poly rope is another excellent high visibility choice for your fence line. It is stronger than poly wire, with stainless steel strands woven through the rope.
The steel strands ensure maximum electrical energy is carried through the fence line at all times. Use a splicer to maintain a good connection. Most poly ropes are about 1/4 inch in diameter.
Note: For best results, use a low impedance fence charger to energize poly wire and poly rope fences. Poly rope should not be used with continuous output chargers.
The height and spacing of the wires will vary with the animal you are containing. Position one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height; this will cause it to hit the fence with its nose, making it back up.
Use poly tape for horse fencing or in rotational grazing since the animals can easily see this highly visible electric fence wire. Splice poly tape with splicer buckles specially designed for easy splicing and repairing of poly tape.
Poly wire is lightweight, so it is very easy to handle. You can rewind it very easily, move it and re-use it. Splice poly wire by tying a good, tight knot to maintain connections. Use a poly wire line tightener on each line and each side of the fence to maintain wire tension.
FENCE CHARGERS FOR WIRE
Use a low impedance fence charger with poly wire and poly tape products.
PERMANENT PERIMETER FENCING
For a permanent perimeter fence, you may want to use high tensile or steel wire as your fence wire.
Fence Wire FAQs
Q: Why is poly tape better for use with horses than regular wire?
A: It's a matter of visibility. Horses can see the tape more readily than wire. Remember, electric fencing is a psychological barrier: after a horse has met up with a poly tape electric fence and has felt the shock, when it sees the poly tape again, it will remember the shock and stay away from the fence.
Q: Why should I place one wire at the animal's shoulder?
A: Positioning one electrified wire at animal’s shoulder height will cause the animal to hit the fence with its nose, making the animal back up. See illustration below.
Q: What is the advantage of using high-tensile wire rather than aluminum wire?
A: High tensile wire is designed to be both a psychological barrier and a physical barrier. High tensile wire not only carries a shock, it is also sturdy enough to prevent a large bull from penetrating the fence line (as long as it has been installed correctly.)
In addition, aluminum wire can stretch out over time as tension is applied to it (very slowly). High tensile wire will not stretch; this affordable barrier can last for many, many years.
