Anyone ever used the Equibraid by Gallagher? Looking for feedback from anyone that uses or has used it. Also any feedback on use with a solar charger?

It's awesome!!!! Seriously, the stuff is super strong. We use it for the top wire on all of our fences. A couple years ago, we had a paramotor (I think that's what they're called? Flying thing with a motor and parachute) crash in our field. It got the top and middle wires of the first fence, and all 3 of the second fence ( fence...driveway...fence |__| ), the wire of course broke, but the braid didn't. It stretched/popped off the insulators about 25 feet into the opposite field. It didn't break the little wires in it either, we did wrap some wire around it at one little section that looked a little sketchy, but other than that, no repairs were needed on the equibraid part of the fence.
PS.. the people in the paramotor were relatively un hurt.. the pilot caught the equibraid under his nose and had to get some stitches, but as soon as his machine was fixed, he was out flying again...a bit more careful though. lol.
