I'm exchanging my premier 1 poultry net

I recently bought an electronet from premier 1. I've had it out for about a week with the energizer off. I bought the "regular" poultrynet in the 164' length. I had opted to not get the poultrynet plus, which has poles every 6 feet at a slightly higher cost.

After a week of fussing with the fence to get it not to sag, I've decided I'm gonna go ahead and splurge on the plus netting to hopefully deal with the sagging issue. Posting in case someone in the future finds herself in the dilemma of which one to choose. I've got no other complaints with the premier 1 stuff otherwise. I do believe the regular poultrynet would work for someone, but I don't want to mess with it that much.

The other thing I REALLY like to use with netting are the plastic posts from kencove. They are small enough round so you can use a t post driver. They help hold tension at gates and corners and don't need insulators and don't have fiberglass to give you splinters.

 
I can't renounce my name. It's on all my stationery! And hinted in this tiny ad:
