    Twisted is a pain in the *** to work with. That's about it.

    ya. I think it's just gimmick to make it look **** so you'll buy it. Monster even puts a piece of fishing line in the middle of each wire to make it bigger and calls it magna flux or some shirt like that.

    I have four, 17ft, runs of 16 gauge Raptor running from a 120x4 rms amp to my front components. It was very easy to run., and transfers the power just fine.
