Best Cable
30 Mar 2013
By unphased
, Staffordshire
"I use this cable exclusively for lighting circuits. My only gripe is the box. All Prysmian cable from 1.0mm2 to 2.5mm2 size is supplied in a flimsy cardboard box! You are best to just rip the box off and use the cable straight off the bobbin. It is very easy to strip the sheath and insulation is good quality."

good quality as always
19 Apr 2012

"This cable does the job every time, no hassle, always use this brand for all sizes. Only issue I hate is the box always seems to rip when extracting cable, frustrating but it is only cardboard with cable rubbing hard against it."

Great Cable
18 Nov 2012
By Sparky1969
, Norfolk
"The only reason this cable doesn't get a 5, is the flimsy cardboard box it comes in.
I have found that if I wrap tape around it before I open it, it stays strong enough to not collapse.

Does its job

"What can you say about cable? It does what you want, it's bendy but strong and is made of copper so it conducts electricity, which makes it pretty much perfect in my book."

Problem with the box.. solved
19 Mar 2012
By TheMightyBoosh
, wilts
"The user whizz who is having problems with the box. Its a classic case of having the box upside down. When you are pulling the cable out make sure the wire comes out of the box at bottom, beneath the reel , as you are pulling the wire in this way the reel will lift and wire will come out easily. if the wire is pulled whilst wire is reeling off at the top its action will bear down on the reel in the box causing great friction or stiffness, hope this helps"

Nice cable, shame about th box
7 Mar 2012
By whiss
, Loughborough
"What can you say about cable, I picked this off the offers shelf as I knew I would need it sooner or later.
The dispenser box looks cool, and no endless cling film to fight with, but I can never get the box to work properly and usually end up tearing it off in frustration!"

"the conductor insulation is of good quality but I'm not keen on the sheathing it doesn't take much to damage it, reminds me of the stuff in licorice allsorts."
