Good quality cable
27 Aug 2013
By SmallinstallsElectricians
, London
"If you use a lot of cable you will have your preferred brands, as a professional electrician this is one of mine.
Why:
1) I have never had the outer insulation stick to the inner insulation as can happen with some manufacturers. This can ruin an installation at the last minute after all the hard work is done.
2) It has a nice high quality feel to it flexible not plastic and ridged like cheaper brands.
3) When in the box it's nice and easy to carry and stack when loading or storing. but don't rely on the box as a dispenser it wont work for more than 2M, get yourself a cable jack or broom through a ladder......
Summary
Good quality cable
"

Good quality cable
2 Aug 2012
By petesparky
, Milton Keynes
"This cable costs a bit more than some other brands but it is made up for in the quality of the cable. As other reviewers have said it strips easily and ive never had any issues with insulation resistance test. The cable drum however leaves a lot to be desired. Made from cheap flimsy cardboard which fails to support the cable until the drum is partly used."
