    This Welding Cable Look OK?

    This cable look OK?

    http://www.stevespiro.com/uploader/f...150%5B1%5D.pdf

    I deal with this vendor through my company and can get some good discounts for myself for 1/0 with no shipping costs.

    This look OK? Thanks for the help!

    looks ok, but at only ~1000 strands I wonder just how flexible it is. I think most CA cable is more like 3000-4000.

    If you don't need the best, it ought to work fine.

    I have welding cable with probably only 500 strands or less. Not very flexible at all, but I was able to run it to the rear of my jeep. Harder to work with, but if you don't need flexibility, then you should buy it.

    idk where the hell these people get their welding wire, but my welding wire is the most flexible wire i have ever used. i don't understand where this non flexible talk comes from

    with less than a 1000 strands I would be worried about the flexability but if your car is not that complicated to run wire in then you should be fine. If you really want to know about the flexability of it go to HOME DEPOT or LOWES and look at their welding wire in 1/0 awg and check it out. If the strand count is more than that of the wire that you are looking at then it will be a little more flex. than what you want and vice versa.

    But other than flexability the wire looks fine.
