We used 8' on ours but we then put 4x4 every 8' and 2 - 1x2x8' cause ours catches alota wind 2 years now and still looks great! good luck!

I use the 6' and as wayne said it catches the wind. I'm always retighting the fence. it stretchs the fence bad.

We sell the majority of 68" x 150' rolls, a lot more then the 44" x 150' or 92" x 150'. Use clip-its every 2' if you have a lot of wind and make sure you use wind flaps or Tundra is correct, it will stretch your fence. Another great idea is to use boards on either side of your fence between your poles for extra support. If you need some photos or anything, please call me, I would be more then happy to advise

Tundra, please call me, I can help you releive the stretch. I am assuming you use Bekaert fence, they seem to stretch a lot and need restretching
