It's Nylon Multi-filament which is the softer more flexible stuff. Techflex make it I believe but 'Techflex' also tends to be the generic name for the shiny (less flexible) stuff. You used Techflex on your HD25 cable and probably wanted 'Nylon Multi-filament' juding by your comments.

Looks like a splice to take the cable from 4 leads to 3.

Brand name plugs are expensive and overrated. Sure, they look nice, but you won't see me paying more than $10 per connector. Hell, those RCAs are (claimed to be) rhodium plated, and are $10 for the pair. Suck on that, WBT. It's worse with phone connectors, I find. But hey, if you've got spare Viablues, I'll take them.

As it has already been pointed out, it's for taking 4 conductors down to 3 because 4 18AWG won't fit inside the barrel of the phone jack.

I'd tell you what wire I'd used, but it'd probably horrify you, and get me banned.

High Tensile Moon Noodles?

19c/foot 18AWG stranded hookup wire Cryogenically treated $200/6" OCC rhodium-plated silver, coated in 15um PTFE by 3M, surrounded by a layer of 600D Egyptian cotton, shielded by a rhodium-plated copper-silver alloy, all wrapped in cheap hookup wire plastic to create the ultimate sleeper cable. The denizens of Head-Fi will be quick to cast off their opinions on the effects of cables on sound once they try this one out.

Personal opinion, but Mogami. The shield is much easier to work with, especially if you need to use the shield as ground. But honestly it depends on what type of wire you're getting (mic, quad, unbalanced, balanced, coax, digital etc).
