Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous moderate
I can’t say it’s a fantastic cable, it’s a moderate cable as same as other, Braided, not such just looking like that, it’s some fiber strips, with used in party wear etc, but looks really cool and performing good with mechanical brake, ferrules a bit loosy , have to be managed tricky, No-Pre lubed

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous At least it's cheap
Looks pretty cool. I work in a school and the some of the kids think this is something special. The ferrules don't grip the ends of the cable outer (minor point i suppose). And in fairness, the cables have lasted pretty well and remained freely moving, after a fairly normal stretching period.
My problem with these cables is one of feel. As I pull the brake lever, I am very aware that something mechanical is going on. It has never got any worse, and isn't a problem, exactly; it's just not as smooth as say shimano or jagwire (only others I have used).
It is cheap, but given how long you have to live with a cable, I think in terms of cost per unit time, the saving is not that great and I would rather be using something that felt nicer.
