Review RateCautiously optomistic.
It was very easy to install the tape six rows high. The splicing was much easier than the poly wire I was using. I do not know yet if it will keep the deer out of our orchard. Check back with me in about 6-9 months.
Review RateGreat tape

Review RateEasy setup, high visibilityBought this a month ago and it seems to be holding up well. Keeps the horse in and other animals out.
Review RateVery durable product!We have a small horse farm that we have placed electric tape between pastures to ensure we have no injuries between pastures where fighting can sometimes be an issue. This 2 inch Zareba tape is built differently than your standard electric tape. It is alot heavier and holds up better in the elements. We will be eventually replacing all our electric tape out with this particular size. Great product!

Zareba® Systems electric fence polytape provides even greater visibility than polywire or polyrope. Reinforced, rip-stop edges also help protect the tape from wear and tear.
The open weave design allows wind to pass through, reducing wear and increasing the longevity of the fence line.
Splicing polytape is easy using specially designed splicer buckles. Use a polytape tensioner to maintain tape tension as needed.
For best results, energize polytape fence lines with a low impedance fence charger. Polytape should not be used with a continuous output charger.
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 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.More Expert Tips About Fence Wire»
