Gear mentioned in this thread:
Mogami w2893 terminated to dual mini XLRs. I used heat shrink under the paracord so that area would be a little more firm and not so flimsy feeling. It turned out nice :)

Love the die you put in there as the Y-splitter and choker!
I see that carbon fiber y-split!
What did you use to make it?
Was it the 3M tape you had or did you get any of the carbon fiber rods?

I haven't gone to any hardware stores yet looking for the rods, that's just a Rean 3.5mm jack barrel with the 3M vinyl, and some clear heat shrink. I will definitely be looking into the rods though.
