I've been using Monster bass cables for a while now, and after spending $50 on one, it was hard to bring myself to buy another one. But it's time. I have realized that Monster is NOT durable (of the 5 monster cables I have owned this past 6 months, only 2 still work), and their only upside is their warranty. I want ideas. Please none of those $140 cables or anything like that. Please don't make a suggestion without giving any reasoning.
