"Although this cable is manufactured by Prysmian, and costs a few pounds less. Its not a patch on the proper stuff. Firstly it's much stiffer than the Prysmian cable making it much more difficult to work with. Secondly, it contains virtually no talc, making it very difficult and time consuming to strip.
Casual users may be able to live with these compromises, but when using the stuff everyday it pays to pay the extra for the good stuff!"
