I bought this to see the quality and to make a few ground cables. This cable needs a good knife to take the shield off so the strength is really there. It is bendable but keeps its form which I love. Not too strong, not too light. The silver plating seems to be of great quality. I believe this makes an amazing internal wire, jumper cable (doubling it up) or ground wire. Due to it's relative strength it is not ideal for DIY speaker cables and likes. For everything else, I highly recommend it, even if the price is somewhat high, it seems to be worth every penny.
