I have used Jescar forever, but am currently unhappy with their barbs, as in not much there.
I am looking into another Mfg. "Polymet". Does anyone have personal experience with their wire, and are the barbs well shaped and prominent?

I have been using Jescar for awhile and I like it. But it is from a coil I bought 8-10 years ago. Has the quality changed?

Yes there are plenty of barbs, but on this last roll they don't stick out very far from the tang.

Have you contacted Jescar to see if they would like to examine a piece of the wire?

No. Maybe I'll ask them who makes a wire with better barbs. I think I'll just order a bit from another supplier.
