Pros: Cable is very flexible and rugged, ideal for microphones.
Cons: Had a hard time with Neutrik connectors, the cable is too thick at 8 mm. But after figuring our how to attach the first connector the rest were easy.
Great mic cable, I would have given it a 10 if the cable was about 6.5 mm.

Pros: - The wire is easy to work with.
- Surprisingly flexible.
Cons: - Cable is too thick for other brands of connectors/plugs.
I was recommended this wire by a friend. He said this was good wire to learn how to solder with, which I can now say is very true.
Don't try to use other connectors like neutrik on this brand of wire. The cable is pretty thick and was really designed for mono's brand of connectors.
I don't think it's really 16ga

Pros: Very thick insulation likely durable.
Cons: I don't think the wire is 16ga as advertised.
My wire strippers and another spool of (unshielded) 16ga stranded wire agree that this wire is a fair bit smaller diameter. Maybe not a problem for most applications of microphone cable, but if you're using it for another application, caveat emptor.

Pros: Very nice wire. Very sturdy, great cable very heavy duty.
Cons: It is 8 mm thick and might not fit in most cable connectors. It took extra time to make the wire fit the connectors.
I redid all my mic cables to custom sizes. This cable is 8 mm in diameter , 8 mm is much thicker then other microphone cable. Before ordering you should make sure that your connectors have a large enough opening for 8 mm cable. I would have rated the cable a 10 on the merit of the cable alone, but as microphone cable it poses a problem for most cable connectors.
