This cable is brilliant. The insulation on the outside is very thick but is easy to strip. I'm going to be using the cable to live work, so robust insulation is very important when the cable is going to be underfoot.
The inner conductors are very easy to solder, and strip, and because they have a bigger cross section than some, giving the cable a very low resistance, they are also very easy to handle when connecting to XLR and jack plugs.
The shield is very easy to twist and solder, the foil screen is easy to remove.
Overall the cable is very flexible, again an important considersation for live work. The bending radius is very good indeed, and the cables should last a lifetime with some reasonable care. It's well worth spending slightly more money on this cable, than some of the cheaper ones on offer.
