Just had a delivery of a 50m length of electric netting from Mole Valley - their own brand. I'm told it's actually "Ovinet" as made in Germany somewhere, and it looks a little bit better than "Flexinet" from Rutland fencing etc. as well as being £51/length as compared with £95/length for the latter.

I have been looking at some of their own brands and it doesn't look to bad at all, same as their feed as well

To continue this thread.

1. Mole Valley "Ovinet" is indeed proving significantly better than expensive Rutland "Flexinets", although both of them are fine.

2. Having been checking fairly carefully for a while, it is a big mistake to ignore breaks in the bottom line: broken line there doesn't matter for keeping stock in, but it does then put extra strain on the higher electrified lines, which then fail prematurely.

3. For repairing bottom lines, "3mm mousing line (black, 8 braid polyester)" works very well: it's both stronger and knots MUCH more easily than the original stuff. You can get it for about £14 for a 100 metre reel from most boat chandlers, or Seamark Nunn will send it mail order for an extra few pounds.
