In general, it is way easier to work with the wires in paracord because with the stock bulk cable, it was very hard to slide the sleeves of the jacks up and down. This resulted in a lot of wasted plugs for me as I would have to exert so much force to slide the sleeve down that sometimes I pulled too hard and the actual plug came off. Also, I've had some funny conection problems where stray strands can sometimes come in contact with others. To solve this as well as add some more strain relief, I have filled the plugs with hot glue before putting the sleeves on. It makes them way more stable electrically and mechanically.
Hope you enjoyed. More materials are on the way so probably more pictures soon. Full album: http://imgur.com/a/q7wbV
Sorry, perhaps my grammar isn't too specific. I think the misconception here is that I required a lot of force to get the sleeving on whether it was techflex or paracord. Yeah no, techflex slides on like a charm and could be "wormed" about 6 -9 inches at a time. Paracord however needed to be inched 1/2 to 1 inch at a time. Definitely grab a movie to relieve the tediousness.
I was referring to the sleeves of the jacks. The Rean NYS231BG plugs have a diameter that is just enough or possibly a bit smaller than the diameter of canare cable. Therefore, you have the hole of the plug sleeve compressing the cable and when sliding back and forth it would be shaving the shielding of the cable. This became very unsightly and it required a lot more effort to keep it clean. Hence the fact which I much prefer working with paracord now because the cable loses that large diameter and is basically just the width of the wire braid. For bigger jacks such as the canare or switchcraft which have a larger diameter for cables, I would recon its not as much of a problem, but I prefer the look and feel of paracord over techflex anyways.
Now, the hot glue was to prevent the stray strands that sometimes occurred when stripping the wire from ever possibly coming into contact with each other. It also allowed me to secure the end of the paracord with hot glue as the crimp strain relief would not likely be tight enough to hold on to the paracord. This was more important for the canare plugs as I did not want to use heat shrink to hold the paracord/techflex in place.
I think I cleared up the conclusion?
Then get the correct plugs for your cable OD?? You're making something sound like a problem that's not a problem...
