Today we looked at LC Teleios sleeving, a high end plastic sleeving product for the modern modder. I found it to be easy to use and of the highest quality in terms of weave and color.
There are a number of good sleeving products available today, much more than say just 5 years ago. So what makes Teleios stand out?
1) Coverage- Nothing worse than ordering 300 ft of sleeve for a PSU project only to find black and other dark color wires bleed through. Even worse, using a black sleeve and everything else
bleeds through. LC Teleios has excellent coverage in a variety of situations, and I found the wire color underneath to be virtually undetectable.
2) Size- There are competing products that vary in size, I found this one to be excellent for use with 18 gauge wire. I did not have any 16 gauge in stock, but it is a large enough size for those projects as well. It was able to go over 3.5 mm connectors with ease, but even better it was able to retain its shape and not become distorted afterward. Tight weave with no noticeable fraying.
3) Color and variety- Lutro0 customs color varieties included 20 different colors, even offering a few blends to mix things up. This is why I often turn to paracord for my projects, there's just a much greater variety of colors to choose from. Can't complain here, plenty to choose from and it is noteworthy that LC carries most colors to match popular motherboard designs. Also of note is that there are matching colors of 8mm sleeve available as well for SATA and USB cables, 9 varieties of 8mm sleeve currently available.
4) Availability- The LC sleeve is available in both the US, and Europe through partners E22. Some of us here stateside find ordering from Euro retailers cost prohibitive. And for the European market, its nice to have choices.
I enjoyed using Lutro0 Customs Teleios sleeve and find it to be versatile and a great jack-of-all-trades type of sleeve. Which is not to say ordinary or average; a lot of sleeving choices are trade-offs between good stuff and bad stuff. Some are too big, too small, lack sufficient coverage, or just not fun to work with. Teleios sleeve does most things very well.
Is it the absolute easiest sleeve to use? Almost
I'd say but not THE easiest. Is it the stiffest? No, but that doesn't matter for most projects.
But what most folks want to know is: IS
it the very best sleeve available today? That leaves a lot to personal preference, but I would say that it IS
one of the best available.
You can order LC Teleios sleeve with confidence that you are getting an excellent product that is versatile enough to handle most things, including 18 gauge, 16 gauge, heat shrink style, heatshrinkless, and even fan cables.-buzznut
