- 48" net wrap will not feed or wrap right. Do not buy! Review by Thomas W. Holloman II
Quality Price Value
I have bought wrap from rural king with mixed luck. The last 2 rolls I have bought from rural king have not feed right and has split into 3 sections and has left my bales wrapped in the center only. This means only 18" of a 48" bale was wrapped and the outer edges about 15" on each side not wrapped. They look like BOZO THE CLOWN HEADS fuzzy on the edges, not able to sell these bales because of the wrap. These bales are hard to transport because of the shape and uneven surface and falling apart. I have a custom working baling business and my customers are not happy with these bales. I have had to buy this hay because it will not store outside with no wrap on the edges and no one wants the hay for livestock as the sides fall off as a result of no wrap on the edges. I am going back to the name brand wrap where the cross weave stays connected to the line threads and will wrap the bales right. Do not buy this wrap, not all the bales were lost but the ones that were lost was in sections of this cross weave coming apart. I think the name of the wrap is Luck Harvest as I have not kept the label, but it is still in stock at rural king @ 219.00 for 48". When it wraps it is good but you do not know until it leaves the baler. Do not buy this wrap! Thomas.

- 48" net wrap Black Jack made in China No Good Review by Thomas
I bought 2 48" rolls of Black Jack net wrap from Rural King and in winter storage out side the net wrap fell apart. The bales would not shead water and the rain soaked into the bales as if I had twine wraped bales. The Black Jack brand is not good for out side storage. It will start splitting in the middle and when you move the bale it falls off. The price was cheap enough but the quality was not good. The year before I bought the same wrap and it worked good, when I asked about the new wrap they said they had no problems with it. I lost a season of hay sales because the wrap split and would not transport, the bales fell apart as I moved them to load. This is not good wrap do not buy the Black Jack wrap.
