Just started buying Lightning- 3500 – 4000 in the last couple of months … lighter, a lot easier to put on. There’s a lot more mucking around to install V-Type … a matter of seconds to install the Lightning … at least ¼ of the time of the others … I mean could be 3 seconds to install (with a bit of practice). We’ve got a lot of suspension fences and the lighter weight of the Lightning means the wires don’t sag. They put up with a lot of punishment … I’ve seen cattle hit a fence with Lightning Droppers on it and they just bounce back with no effect to the fence at all. The others (V-Type) bend; mate, I’ve seen them break! I’ll keep using them – I’ve got 30km going up at the moment & that’s all I’ll use. Most people out here use ‘em.
