Solid as a brick
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is SOLID stuff! The reel itself weighs more than most normal-sized humans. :-) This cable is designed for direct burial, and it shows (in fact, in my installation, it's not only buried in dirt and run through an underground conduit it shares with sprinkler soaker pipe, it's snaked between the stones in an exterior rock wall and mortared over-- and I'm not the least bit concerned about its health). Like Monster Cable before it, I'm a little bit confused as to its "directionality"-- it has that little arrow that shows the optimal signal flow-- I'm not sure of the technical justifications behind it, but I obeyed it nonetheless. Smaller details-- it strips easily and cleanly, which is a plus... I really can't find anything bad to say about this cable.
Pros: Solid, well-made, strips easily, inspires confidence for weird, direct-burial scenarios
