Thanks guys. Billy, very good ideas, I'll order the Cast one. I started paying attention and writing notes for the exact feet for each run as well, as indicated on the wire. This is a cool feature. Easy to strip off for multiple runs this way, plus a sure way to know if you have enough left on a spool to make it. Does anyone just keep spools on the truck and strip off what they need? I figured if I use a long rope/tape measure tool and use wire that has the feet indicated, I can strip off what I need. In my calculation of feet, I'll determine a good percentage to add on for actual use, taking into consideration all the imperfections inside the trench.
