Question Cable Brands - What Did You Use??

I was quoted $1500+ from my dealer to do a proper bar swap, including cables, wires etc, so needless to say, I'm going to give it a shot and do it myself.

Even though the cables may reach for my Factory47 12's, I would like to class it up with some black braided lines. I was looking at Magnum cables, but does anyone have another brand that you prefer and have a solid history with? Or a horror story about Magnum's??

I ordered my Magnum cables on a Friday afternoon and got them the next Friday. So, plus one good experience with Magnum.

I've used the Barnett cables and think they are well made and good looking. Quick on delivery when I've called direct and so far they have not created any issues in the time I've had them on my bikes.

Same here on Magnum. Only had them on my 16" apes for a couple of weeks but they do offer the ability to choose individual parts as necessary when doing your build if necessary. So far so good.
