I purchased this cable and have been gigging with it for a little over a year now. I have had no trouble with this cable whatsoever. It has lasted longer than most cables that I have owned and I'm confident that, given enough time, it will outlast the others. If you want an excellent quality cable that won't start shorting out after only a few months of gigging and is durable enough to take the abuse of being walked on by stage hands and fellow band members then this cable is worth the purchase. I haven't regretted purchasing this cable once and I will definitely order more in the near future. This is an excellent product at an excellent price.
