That's my one complaint about Bakeart ht barbwire. No real spool on their rolls. Those 2 little plastic things ain't worth a crap when you get down close to the end of the roll.

We need to get you some Tornado barb wire so you can develop more complaints for Bekaert products.

Every once in awhile, but not nearly as bad.
Years ago, decades..all wire I used came on a spool frame like that, but the wire itself had it's own problems. Stretch and stretch and stretch, then get loose again just on it's own and it rusted all the heck. It's why I started using Bekeart ht. A little harder to work with according to some, but in 5 years, it don't look like it was put up in the late 1800s.

Y'all are rolling it out in the wrong direction. North rolls have to rolled to the north. East to the east etc.
It'll be stamped on there somewhere. Sometimes it's pretty small, you gotta look hard.

Says the guy that's rolling wire out from the wrong side. You have the roll on upside down. Everyone knows that in this hemisphere, you have to unroll it off the other (right) side and if the roll is sitting horizontal, it has to come off from the top of the roll and not the bottom...

Good eye Greybeard.. :clap:
It does make a slight difference. Agreed. Not as big a difference as toilet paper. I just threw a partial roll up there for the photo and didn't pay attention. You caught me.. :oops:

Seems like twice as many would be upside down if it was 4 point instead of 2 point??? You sure it's just half?

We always roll out the bottom wire backwards on purpose so the barbs point down.
