Not being a fan of paying too much for a guitar cable but finally giving in, heh, I bought Prolink Monster Cables (2 so far). Being 44 and a longtime rocker I wasn`t sure how good my ears were still, but after buying these I believe they add a touch more highs basically. Things seem a little tighter tonally as well. They are made very well and the outer jacket is thicker and a bit more rigid. The connects are beautiful really, classy I guess you can say. I would think they would hold up well in the long run but haven`t had them that long to test that theory. Yeah they`re pricey, but they ARE nice. Get what you pay for I guess. Nice cables!
