There is one who brought sleeve to the PC word, he is the one who invented all the mazing new colors and he also offers you the best accessories you need for sleeving (e.g. heatshrink, crimps, plugs....)


Now some guys see his work and copy it...
They might be really good in copying and put a lot of work into it to get the same result BUT it is still only copying frown.gif

(don't tell me it is not - I see the comparison of red and red ... this didn't happen by chance...)

The fanboy statements for MDPC-X are really starting to get old. FTW PC Sleeve is not an imitation of MDPC-X. We started R&D on a material that would be more resistant to fraying while still being able to be dyed. We chose to work on something new instead of copying. If we wanted to copy MDPC-X, we would have gone to Techflex and had them weave up a tight weave PET sleeving for $0.08-0.10/ft and sold it for $.15/ft.

As for that red, it is nothing special, it is just the standard red. If you go to just about any cable/sleeving company, you'll get the exact same red since most source their filament for weaving from the same company.

You are praising Nils for holding a monopoly on the market for the last few years and selling a product, which he gets for $0.08-0.10/ft, for $.35/ft. I'm sure there will always be people who just buy MDPC-X, but they should be happy that FTW PC entered the market to dissolve a monopoly, helping all customers.

On a side note - I would like to thank all of our friends here on OCN for the support. It has really helped to get this company off the ground.

I totally understand you covertash smile.gif
The shipping inside Germany is extremely cheap and we don't have to take the pice *1,4 like you have to do...

But Tator Tot you totally misunderstood me...
First of all - why should I for myself fear the competition between two MDPC-X and FTWPC???
I was referring to the sentences "we have to support FTW because they are local".
I would never use the location as an argument. Compared to the fact that they copy (do the same) the products this is a really weak argument for me...

So isn't it better to just say it as it is: "I like saving money"?


And you said it so often "they do such a good email support".
Just that nobody forgets about it: Nils does, too biggrin.gif

For me in Canada it's the same price for both. So I'm torn as to where to order from, it would be faster from the US, but I've never waited more than a few days from Nils...

This is very good to know. I will make sure to keep an eye out for the fraying if, and when, I can get a hold of some MDPC-X to compare.

Yeah, in the end, it really comes down to pricing and speed of delivery. Whatever works best for the individual, in the end, is what is most important. As long as more and more beautiful work can be created, thanks to the availability of great options, everybody wins. thumb.gif

I think this thread should get back to what it was made for ... pictures of sleeving ... not companies posting sales and flame wars between sleeving companies...

I guess all I have to add to this discussion is that competition is good (for the consumers tongue.gif), but MDPC should never be forgotten as being the one that has made cable sleeving what it is today in the world of computer aesthetics smile.gif

Settings were off so lots of noise and had to post process a lot, but this thread needs pictures.

Also good example of the importance of stretching the sleeve. The wire in the middle is properly tightened, the others are a bit too loose.
