Yes, I've never had a problem until this particular cable. Used everything from coil cables in the 70s, to George L, and cheap monoprice over the years. Was just posting to note that I didn't expect trouble from this 35 dollar, made in USA cable. It's over a year old but I'm going to send it to spectraflex if they care to test it and see if a one-off problem. Not asking for a refund, just curious to know what's specifically wrong with it.
