    **** Knu keeps updating and coming out with better and better stuff. Making me want to give them a closer look if they would just change the way they do some of their connections on the power and distro blocks to the way I like them.LOL

    Re: new wire boner?

    If I need a lot of flexibility, I'll probably use it, but I rarely ever do, so I'll just stick with welding wire, thank you.

    It's also not tinned

    And yes I do have Welding Wire that I got for FREE in my ride. It does not like moisture.

    Re: new wire boner?

    So, did the patent on hyperflex just run out during this past year or what?

    RF, and now Knu... both have similar offerings now.

    Re: new wire boner?

    Um thats some expensive cable. I see no reason not to go to the local hardware store and buy what they have so long as it fits your needs. Your not going to hear the difference between normal copper wire and the 99.99999% oxygen free stuff with superpowers.

    Flexible wire for the win for multiple runs.... single runs even Knu KLM, which is relatively stiff, works fine for me

    Schosche EFX is darn flexible too... not sure what it costs retail, but I have a box of it and it is nearly as flexible as Kicker Hyperflex.

    You can when it ages and your connections begin to ****. Tinned stays silver and copper turns green. Oxidization = bad connections = problems.

    So then just tin the wire yourself...........

    If you can afford thousand dollar amps, you can afford to buy a solder pot for a couple bucks.

    Or I'll just stick with my 200 feet of SILVER TINNED OFC copper in my Kicker Hyperflex that I got for $300.

    Less than weldingsupply welding cable...
