I just got a price on 6 -150' rolls of the Dura flex 18 gauge vinyl coated 4 foot high with 12" apron. Shipped to a business runs $189.00 a roll. Still haven't priced my posts and slick wire, hog clips etc but its gonna leave a mark, I'm sure.

I built mine about 8 or 10 years ago out of chain link with 2 foot chicken wire at the bottom & a smooth wire at the top. Its about 3/4 acre & cost about $600 to build back then.

James. How many rolls before it's discounted per a roll? If they do that I may buy a roll or two.
