cable restraints.

When I took the class the instructors gave us a cable restraint. Does anyone know where they get these cable restraints? I'll probably order some.
Thanks.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: cable restraints.

I've tried a few different brands of cable restraints but keep going back to Snare One. Newt's expensive but in my opinion he's the best at what he does.

Ron's Cable shop has them made by Dakoda Line Snares.

Re: cable restraints.

The instructors likely give out ones they make themselves...I know the one I got wasn't anything special and cable wasn't loaded properly...

I agree I'd call Newt from snareone and tell him what you need...his are awesome...I haven't tried but I don't know how he loads cable so well and even..

Re: cable restraints.

It's not rocket science to load a cable. More you do, you will get the feel..

The duck under fence set is illegal in Pa., but the video has some tips to load in the field...

Re: cable restraints.

I'm sure it's not rocket science....bit at the same time I don't go through enough to warrant even messing around making my own so I leave it upto someone that has made more than probably anyone alive...

The cable given out in the classes is provided by the PAGC. They buy them in bulk from a national supplier.

I have watched Newt hand load the cable before final assembly. He makes it look easy. LOL

No problem, '06.
<span style="color: #660000"><span style="font-weight: bold">the one I got wasn't anything special and cable wasn't loaded properly...</span></span>
'06, It was made according to PGC regulations. A basic, shiny cable restraint is given to you at class time.
If a person prefers to modify or treat their PGC cable, that's their choice to load themselves or purchase 'loaded' cable, and treat the shiny finish to a dull finish.
I posted the youtube links so folks have a better understanding between a regular cable and loaded cable and their workings. Many folks make their own cables and for family & friends. Lots of cable video on youtube.
When we hold Cable Class in my area, me and another instructor bring along a few 'loaded' cables to show the class and explain why they are modified thataway.

The instructors do not make the cables for classes.
The Pa. Game Commission purchase them in bulk. They are then given to local Wildlife Control Officer for class use. Then given one per student attending Cable Class.
