Re: S17 fence energizer is junk; anything else in the range worth the $$?
I have a parmak magnum 12. Been a great one so far, I have had a patriot p2 it was good. I am liking the parmak especially for the price many good reviews also. I use aluminum wire a lot more conductivity. A low impedance charger is the key, especialy with the weeds, it won't bother them like the others. Remember you are trying to keep bears out not cattle in , different ballgame!
All beekeepers can agree on one thing, and that one thing is, that all beekeepers can't agree on one thing.
