    for us old guys who remember really crappy coiled cables, its sort of cool to now be able to purchase well made coiled cables, just for the nostalgia factor.

    but the attached add is just silly. as far as I can tell, this is the special cable they use for coiled guitar cords, just without being coiled. In other words, its a straight cable!!!

    Is it so crazy to think that cables could have different outer casings? For instance, the reason I hate my Monster cable has nothing to do with how well it transmits signal or how durable it is: I hate it because the outer casing makes the cable physically misbehave. It constantly curls up while I'm playing when other cables have no problem keeping themselves tangle free.

    So, no, it's probably not just a straight cable in other words.

    That being said, that cable is still definitely a touch on the expensive side.
