180,000 PSI 12.5 Gauge High-Tensile Wire with Class 3 galvanization and slightly lower tensile strength is an excellent choice for those who prefer the traditional hand-knotting methods. In New Zealand, 180,000 PSI wire is the standard for both electric and non-electric fences. Class 3 galvanized coating resists rust up to three times longer than traditional farm store wire. Kencove WSA2 wire has a minimum breaking strength of over 1350 lbs. The price and quality make this wire very popular.
180,000 PSI min = 1358 lb @ .099 in
