Go with 2 runs of 12.5 gauge. Tighten as much as you can pull. If you plan on using using gripples donít use them. They wonít hold. Either use high tensile crimps or fastlocks. Once itís as tight as you can pull it side tie and stake where needed.
When I did 1 1/2 inch this way and staked every 20ífeet I could do pull up in between stakes.
