Hey btw @CeeSA, how much costs one of your nice cables?

I think it would be a waste of money to do it just for some cables for myself like i originally planed, even though i would have fun doing that...

Another question can you do cables with the shielding cable included? Not sure if necessary.

(Because strage stuff happened to my revel as i used a cable without shielding.)

Also according to this http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/young-modulus-d_417.html, PVC tensile modulus is 6-10 times higher than PTFE, so PTFE is supposed to be much, much more flexible.
You also have to look at the Shore hardness of a material; PTFE is like Shore D 50; you can get Silicone with Shore A 40. Plus you can treat silicone so it is not as rubbery. Another factor is extrusion: you can make really thin insulation with mPPE, however its stiffer than silicone. Lots of factors to consider.

Well i'm not gonna go as far as to DIY my own wires. PTFE covered wires are widely available here however.

You can get silicone insulated litz wires as well; PVC is however more common. By the way you also have to look at whats underneath the insulation: the finer the strands in a conductor, the better.

There is no shielding inside my cables, so the inner shield cable is obselete.

I did the first cables with the inner shielding cable, because I didn't realize this fact. ;)

I occasionally have huge distortion on my usb dac during mouse movement. Replugging the mouse and/or moving the cables apart alleviates the problem.

Curious, but does this cable beat the Debraided Orochi cable? It looks two times thicker, havent found a more
narrow and flexible cable than this.

Narrowness is no criterion for me. I see benefit in lightweight and flexibily.

I only know the 1gen non braided orochi cable.

 

My paracord cable beats my orochi cable in flexibility. All I can say.

Inside the thick paracord are only 4 thin (more or less) parallel cables. There is much free room for the inner cables to be flexible.

The only reason the stock g303 wires are so thick and inflexable is because there a higher gaufe about 28 ceesa uses 44 which means the copper strands inside are MUCH thinner

Well, AWG28 would mean it's single strand wires... I don't even want to tear the cable apart just to check.
