"Addendum #2: Fang replied to my question regarding whether the cables are reinforced for additional strength and he said yes, that they had the most kevlar possible used in their construction and that they passed the "11 thousand times swing test". I am not sure what this test is, but it sounds as if the cables should be extremely durable despite the small size. Very encouraging to hear."
Yeah well... Even if they did that, the cable is still prone to tangling more than anything for some bloody reason.
No matter what I do, it just won't stop tangling up and would never lay flat. Just never.
Maybe they should try "11 thousand times tangle test" instead... I guarantee the cable will almost certainly die after 50 - 100...
No matter how hard I try, the cable just does whatever it wants and whenever I pick the HP up, the cable looks horribly... Even though it was fine when I rolled it up.
