If I step on a double spike, it turns into a single spike almost immediately. The outer spike simply folds over the first time it hits a stone. Additional weight and tangling are another problem that I had blotted from my memories of working with that DS poultry net.

Single spike. I do use a hammer to tap in posts when it gets dry and the ground becomes hard. Been doing it for 5 years now and it hasn't hurt anything yet. Works great in gravel then too.

I think it is a matter or personal perference....hot fudge or caramel on ice cream? Both are good, it depends on the person, purpose and environment.

I prefer single spike.

Stop talking ice cream! At this time of day, and I am craving it. Weird!
