Anyone know where to get Fancier tech flex? Other than the usual Black, and a few solid colors. Softer materials? Mixed colors seen in some aftermarket power cables.

The stuff I use is the fire-retardant kind, hence the white tracer.

See the link in my Mall-Fi ad for pics.

LOL, wow Cable Organizers certainly has a variety of different types.

These look interesting.

http://www.cableorganizer.com/non-skid/


Could reduce microphonics that plague techflex wrapped cables, specifically for headphone cable replacements.

Or

http://www.cableorganizer.com/kevlar/


"Bulletproof" cable wrap. Haha. Kevlar would be my first choice if I wanted to really reduce microphonics. Or uh, keep them from getting bullet holes in them.

Decorative ones....

http://www.cableorganizer.com/reflex/



I wish they sold by the foot. Pretty expensive stuff.


Speaking of expensive....

Teflon?!

Hmmmm.

Nylon Multifilament Expandable Braided Sleeving
http://www.cableorganizer.com/nylon-multifilament/

"Lightweight and flexible
Cuts easily with Hot Knife or scissor
Resists automotive fluids
Soft and pliable
Excellent abrasion resistance
UV resistant
Operating Temp. -49°F to 248°F
Melt Temp. 250°C / 182°F
Excellent for sound and rattle control"


I think this one is a more reasonable solution.

It says that it's softer and more pliable. How soft is it?

Anyone use this stuff before?

Again......wish......they sold......by....the......foot.......

That Kevlar would be cool, but not cheap. It's tempting to get a 50' roll of the small diameter.

Hmmm, I found the difference, the Nylon (NY) Multifilament type is more "cloth" like. I think that's the one I want.

Now to find out which size would work. They don't list what it's maximum and minimum sizes it does.

Heheh, the Teflon one would be nice for an all silver cable.

I can vouch for cableorganizer.com. They have the cheapest prices I can find. I get all my cable sleeving from there. And, as you probably already know, they have a huge selection of different colors, UV colors, etc.

Does cableorganizer.com allow you to buy in smaller quantities?

Makes it pricey to buy if you don't want a 50+ ft spool.

Especially if you just want to try some out to see if you want more.

From cableorganizer.com?

Do you have to call for per foot pricing? I don't see options to order anything be the foot. Only mini spools and spools.
