It does the trick for now.

These 14-gauge cables deliver good sound even at lengths of 175 feet from amp to speaker.

The PVC jacket is rugged but stiffer than rubber, but seems to endure better regarding sharp surfaces cutting or nicking the surface.

Ease of Use
It winds well enough --but the stiffness, especially when new, can be hard to overcome, so it is important to always wind it correctly.

After three years the connectors are finally failing. The 1/4" sleeve portion of the plug comes loose where it is riveted onto the fiber disc. It can't be fixed, so the connectors must be replaced. When they get loose, there is the danger of a short happening, or just an outright lack of a connection, which could damage the amp. I got a terrible high end hiss one time because of the looseness--not sure if it was amp related or a bad connection into the speaker. The outer cover had an oversized opening for a larger cable, and the play it allowed from the extra space may be contributing to the early loosening. In the picture of the connector, it does not appear to be the oversized-opening type. Maybe it was a quick exchange during manufacturing due to a lack of a smaller-opening outer cover being available. The opening should be as small as possible for the cable jacket to fit in. My cables are not subjected to excessive abuse or use, and I am read more always very gentle with them despite this eventual and increasingly evident problem.

Despite the connector issue, I would still prefer them for the value.

Not attempted.

The Wow Factor
It's just a cable with connectors on it...for sex appeal, a cable can be considered phallic in nature, especially with oversized connectors.
