I have seen your previous answer on the difference between "solid" and "stranded"; apart from flexibility is the main difference price? I.e. it is more expensive to make the flexible one! Regards Tim
Asked by: Anonymous
I’d assume so , we don’t actually make the cable , we only distribute from our suppliers , but that is the difference one if more flexible , I've located a fun article should yo u wish to read it .

With your cable L86AX (cat 6) which crimp tool and connectors are compatible to make a good, reliable crimp?

JT49D is a pack of ten RJ45 connectors, PZ18U and JW52G are suitable crimp tools.

Your Cat5 & Cat6 ethernet cable descriptions seem a bit mixed up - for instance the tec spec on the Cat6 stranded cable says it has solid conductors, and all say they are avaliable in 100m reels but these don''t show up in the shopping menus below.
Asked by: Anonymous
There is an error in the spec table, this cable is stranded. To order a full reel of cable enter 100 into the quantity box, this is the reel quantity. By doing this you will also get a 50% discount for buying a full reel.
