Work very good By yarder

I installed a Zareba battery powered fence with the Zarbea aluminum 17 gauge wire to keep the deer from destroying our flower garden. I tried copper wire, but the aluminum wire worked better. Every since installing the Zarbea system the deer no long attack our garden.

Quality Products from Zareba By Jack

I have purchased all of my electric fencing needs from Zareba. The electric chargers are reliable in very difficult application and this 17ga fence wire is perfect. Easy to handle, bend and wrap as needed. Good quality wire. Wound on spool well for easy roll out and stringing line, yet strong enough to connect hook-up wire and connector. Highly recommend purchasing from Zareba as customer support is excellent as well.

Amazon Review, Good but wear gloves By
Works great and is very cheap. It bends nicely and is easy to twist to other wire. However wear gloves- the ends are sharp and the wire leaves residue all over your hands.
