Any recommendations on barb wire. We always used the gaucho wire and redbrand woven wire. Is there anything better that's not thru the roof?

Many don't like it but I've always preferred the little motto barb wire. It cheap. lasts forever, and it stays sharp.

It's the same as Gaucho isn't it? Bekaert's brand that is made for export and in some cases, made under license in Peru and Hong Kong?

"Bekaert ZA is made from the same high tensile steel as our industry
leading Gaucho , Motto , and Cattleman high tensile barbed
wire.
Bekaert ZA like all other Bekaert high tensile barbed wire
has equal or greater strength than standard 12.5g barbed wire."

He said he is used to using Gaucho. That IS a high tensile wire.

But, that is barbed hi-tensile. I was asking about using smooth hi-t.
