I have 4 rolls of 2500' each of IMSA Spec 28-3 10ga insulated copperweld for
sale.  This stuff has really tough hdpe insulation and about 1200# breaking
strength.  This is the only wire I will use here for Beverages, Inverted
V's, wire verticals, and Inverted L's.  In almost 30 years of using this
stuff I have had one corner of an inverted L fail from flexing despite big
ice and wind storms, bears flossing with the Beverages, and a moose ripping
a Beverage down after breaking the ropes from both ends.   WARNING, never
let go of the ends, this stuff has spring even after being in the air under
tension for 20+ years.


This stuff used to be available from Clifford of Vt and other places but has
been declared obsolete and is not being produced any more, I had to order
15kft to get it made to order.


Cost is $527/roll picked up here.  It is on wood rolls now about 18"
diameter.  Shipping is possible, but will be expensive as each roll is over
90# and I'm not sure if they will need to be boxed. the boxes they arrived
in were totally trashed by UPS.


Dealers welcome.
