The 8 gauge monofilament wire is used to strengthen our extra strength poly deer fencing as well as keep the plastic deer fence from sagging between posts. The 8 gauge wire is ultra violet (UV) stabilized to prevent breakdown caused by the sun and weather. The breaking load of this deer fence wire is approximately 1200 pounds. Deerbusters recommends installing a run of this 8 ga monofilament wire at the top and bottom of the deer fence for best results. The monofilament wire should be crimped using our connection sleeves at each corner or end system. Use our round monofilament tighteners and tools to achieve your desired tension. This is for a roll of 1666 feet of 8 gauge monofilament wire.
