We got strainers 5 years ago from our local supplier and they're totally rotten, I'm told they came from Poland. If I remember I'll take a picture tomorrow. Absolutely shocking

I'm going to give clipex a go if I can afford it

Only thing is their strainers are very very expensive, better to get something like electric poles for straining post and use the clipex for intermediates ir

I got 30 strainers from that guy Tom O'Neill in Ayr, 15 year guarantee and have the points so I can use my post driver. I would only get the intermediate posts from Clipex(y)

Clipex will be good - I have a lot installed now. It is a system, though, in that the posts and wires match up with each other - for clip spacings. Check first with your Clipex dealer - but I think they do different posts for different nets/wires.

Hampton's new metal posts are an option too....

Agree with others - I'm buying creosoted posts for intermediates - and going up a size, so they will take longer to rot.

Nothing worse than going back to re-timber a fence - do you do it at year 5-6 or year 10 when the wires are all trampled down into the ground? I was getting 4-5 years too. :mad:
