Before you dismiss Phillystran because of price, do a comparison.  You can get 
the prices on   Yes Phillystran is more expensive per foot, 
but there are significant savings when you DON'T have to buy insulators and 
cable clamps to break up the guys.  And once you use Phillystran you will never 
go back to EHS with all the coiling, the sharp ends, the pain of cutting 
(though a 4in hand grinder with a cutting wheel makes quick work of it), the 
annoyance of getting a cut end through an insulator and all the rest of EHS 
that tears my old and sensitive hands.   You have some EHS already to make the 
ends that is recommended to avoid vandalism and grass fires so that will not be 
a factor.

I for one would never consider EHS again, regardless of cost because the well 
being of my hands is worth whatever more it costs.

my $0.02 and worth what you paid for it..

  Hi all

   I  know about Phillystran but am not willing to spend all the $$$$ to buy it.

  Any thoughts on this ?
