Hey guys, just wanted to show you guys my latest attempt at heatshrinkless paracord. Looks much better than my other previous attempts I think.

What sleeving is best for training cables, LC Stiff line, Paracord or MDPC? Also 16AWG or 18AWG?

isnt 18 thinner than 16 so therefore won't hold shape so well?

^correct. LutroOs 16gauge really fills the stiffline up. Looks reeeaal nice. Easier to train as well.

oops, i got it backwards. you want the thicker unless you're using a really stiff sleeve.

Best I have used is my 16awg and stiff-line.

18 and 16 both train well with stiffline but 16 is better.

18 is indeed thinner but I sell the wire with a good core so it still holds its shape well even with the thin diameter, The trainability of a cable has to do with the type of insulation and the type of wire strands. So both the 18 and 16 train well - when you combine either one with stiff-line you get an even easier cable to train as you add more stiffness with the stiff-line - hence the name.

Hi guys..

Just spent all day building cables and sleeving them.. I used 2.06mm 16awg Eco wire with a rating of 26/o.25 and mdpc sleeve..

Had to match my Sabertooth board!

It is however my first attemp and I'll be perfecting a second try as soon as my fingers heal.. wink.gif

Sorry for the bad phone pics..
