"great product, reputable brand.
The only drawback i can really complain about is that the cardboard box doesnt stand up to much unreeling of the cable.

Inconsistent quality

"Now and again - twice in 3 now - 1.5mm seems to be hard to remove outer insulation - seems to be welded to the neutral!
I think the supplie ris skimping on the powder coating that seperates the cores from outer layer!
