Note: The little Houdini Welsh Cob gelding gave up after five minutes of the Mega Braid. We have another gelding who isn't afraid of hotwires too. He doesn't care if he gets shocked. He will take down a thin polyrope hotwire fence. The Mega Braid also works for him. I wish this product had been around when I was younger. We had 50 mules. We put temporary electric fencing around our hay stacks. Some of the mules figured it out. They would go about a 1/4 mile out in the pasture, run for the hotwire at a gallop, braying at the top of their voices, and take down the hotwire, knowing they would get a shock. But it was worth it. The fence was down. I am very sure a mule vs. Mega Braid would lose.
We used electrobraid for the mares' temporary winter quarters this year, because electrobraid is extremely easy to take down and move, but we were very tempted to use this product instead. It certainly would have worked well for the mares too. Be use to use insulators of a large size for the Mega Braid. We used the electrobraid brand claw type, and they were perfect. Also, use large size copper split bolts. The smaller electrobraid size are too small. To fasten the ends of the Mega Braid to the fence we used brackets and glass insulators from a telegraph line that we had. These aren't products most people have, so shop for the larger glass insulators and wire or bolt them on. It certainly makes a superior fence that is very strong, easy to see (far more visible than electrobraid) and maintenance free.
The biggest issue we had with polyropes was it would degrade in the hot Texas sun and the wire strands that carry the charge would always break. Not with this product, it's polyrope on steroids... This rope is thicker than standard polyrope so make sure you get hangers and connectors that accomidate the thicker size.
Finally I emailed the customer support for answers. I thoroughly explained my concerns and voltage problems and what I had done to test the fence. I tested the grounding system 2 ways and it passed. The energizer was new and it passed tests also. Nothing was touching the fence. The first response I got from the company said this "Second, while some voltage drop is to be expected, what you are seeing could be considered significant." And offered a few suggestions that either didn't apply, or didn't help find the issue.
After my followup email where I suggested that the multiple strands of wire in the fence were causing too much resistance, their response was much shorter and ended with this "I say all of that to say this: if your fence provides a good shock, it does seem that the fence is working properly, no matter the voltage reading." To me, it sounds like they were backpedaling. So now a significant voltage drop is OK? I should mention that I'm an engineer and I have looked up that the resistance of the stainless steel wires is much greater than copper (Electrobraid). And the fact that they have 8 strands of SS compared to just 3 in Electrobraid also supports my thoughts that the product itself is causing my voltage issues.
Over a month went by with no further response from them. What horrible customer service! This is my 2nd issue with this company, the 1st was that all the 3/8" connectors sold to me rusted within a month. Their customer service was horrible for that issue also, though I did eventually get a refund from them for the connectors due to my persistance. The only solution that was offered regarding the MegaBraid voltage issues was for me to buy a more powerful charger. Basically saying a 10-mile charger was not strong enough to properly electrify just 1000' of their product!
