We purchased their heavy duty cold weather insulators and installed the fence to specifications with a slight exception, we placed the posts 15ft apart which is much closer than their 25-50ft recommendation. This is all on the backside of a summer pasture which is used from April to October-ish. The horses in it are very respectful of the fence and have not tested it. In fact, it was only electrified for the first month and we haven't hooked a charger to it since.
Within 1 season, numerous insulators had broken this has been the largest and most costly annoyance. Especially the roller insulators, the center lin will warp lopping the whole thing out. I have to do something to fix this fence every year. Tensioning it is a complete pain. The snow bends it, a couple fat lazy deer have broken it. For the total cost, we could have done all continuous post and rail that would be much much less maintenance. If I were to turn it on, I would also have to mow underneath the bottom strand a couple times per year (that strand is 18in off the ground) which is not necessary with wood.
Some people love it. They did contact us twice about writing a success note for them and we declined. They have no answer for why the insulators break and have done nothing to repair/replace the product.
