I've always used fender cables and this one is better than the last few because of the plastic coating. The cable doesn't get threaded or cut and damaged easy at all and the sound quality is as always is with Fender, excellent. These leads are the best to buy for your guitar. I have three now with no issues for the last two years and I gig a good bit.
I like these leads, they are durable and of a high quality, and seem to be built to stand the test of time. By criticism the the California range of leads is the material is quite still and hard to unwind in smaller spaces.
