I still use one like that. Does a nice job in the right place.

Can't beat the design of it. If you're working alone, just pull it tight and staple the wire to the post your'e pulling from, then work backwards.

I still use one too. Mines not old. But it’s the same. Works better than anything I know of when you’re down in a branch patching fence behind someone who used a bunch of trees for posts. Also use it a lot on short pulls out in the open.

That's probably some of the wire I put up 40 years ago you're patching on.
