I like my 2" bullet and loop of chain. I can pull multiple pipes at once and any size up to 1.5. For 2" I use a Chinese finger grip. But to each his own.

By the way, when using a king grip to pull a main with wire, how do you attach the wire?

I usually just tie it to the chain but I have several blades and some have a wire chute along with a bullet.

It's a good thing I didn't ask if you had a 7-7/8 then!

With the wire chute, you're laying the wire rather than pulling it aren't you?

Done properly, wire should be installed with a "drop" blade. It has an opening in the back called a "gate". The wire is fed through through this gate area. The concept is that the wire is installed in the slit and never moves to maintain it's integrity.

That being said, we have all "pulled" wire along with some pipe from time to time.
