    I have an offer on the table for 4 rolls of "used" hardwire for $120...their description is

    "40ft or more on a roll. Height close to 5ft all so keep in mind it is used"

    is this reasonable to those of you that know the price of this stuff?

    Thanks!!

    the only price i could come up with was on a 48" roll 100' long, new.
    249.99
    i'd say if you can score for the offer you've made you would be doing great.

    edit: just to be clear, this is "hardware cloth" and i assumed that's what you meant by hardwire.

    "used" could be a concern if it means "...and therefore has holes here and there". Real hard to patch in a satisfying way, especially if you care about aesthetics at all. Stretched-out places are aggravating to work with also.

    The price is not unreasonable otherwise, IMO.

    I`just spent $18.00 for 10ft of 3ft high 1/4 hardwire cloth. If the wire is in good condition grab it!
