    There should be a thread that ONLY has a POLL showing how many people use some of the more popular cable companies.

    I know that this is a touchy subject around here, but I have been reading through some of the various (now closed) cable threads and it is hard to make heads or tails of them for all the mud-throwing.

    A poll only thread might be very informative, without the mud-slinging...I would do one myself, but I don't know how...
     
  2. I'd do it but since there are a fair amount of TBers using cables that I made, I think it would seem like a troll.

    I think it would have to be a poll that allows you to make multiple selections.

    A poll is a good idea, but you should include some brands of bulk cable:

    ProCo
    SoundFlex
    Dayton (house brand of Parts Express)
    Belden

    And plugs:

    Switchcraft
    Neutrik

    Agreed, also Canari bulk cable. Another tricky one is George L cables- they are available in two different gauges, and some people (like me) use George L plugs on Canari or Belden bulk cable.

    well if you want to do it it's easy.

    when making a new thread scroll down and you'll find the options which include making the thread a poll. They're pretty self explanitory, i was able to do it.

    ya just might want to encourage people to refrain from mudslinging in the thread itself. there have been some pretty heated threads regarding a cable manufacturer or 2 in the past. ;)
