Hi there, just wanted to see what size cable people are using for their trellis system. I have seen 5/16 air craft cable, 3/16 aircraft cable. My trellis system is poles 15 feet from ground rows spaced at 10 feet apart, rows 80' long with pole at 40'. Thanks!

I use 3/16 but my runs are around 60'. 1/4 would probably be the best for you. Remember to ground one end of it incase of a lightning strike (yes it happens)

Thanks for the suggestion. I have my field ready, poles ready, rhizomes on order, just need some hardware now.
