It was nice to not spend ten minutes unpicking wire. Normal cables are black and do not store well. This is not black and its similar to a good quality microphone cable, it just does not tangle up. On personal use note, I wish I'd bought the longer one now, 2m in my case was too short.

A really top quality product and works as expected.

This is so much better than the standard cable that comes with the SW mounts. It's much heavier though so you might want a few cable fixing/clamps to hold the cable to the mount to prevent damage to the connection point.

Very tough and well made lead with good quality components.

The last tome I used my mount i brushed against my original lead 4 times and each time power was lost to my mount.
Old lead now replaced by Lynx Astro power lead.
Well there’s no comparison between the two the new lead is far superior to my old one.
The cigarette plug is a good tight fit with no sign of any play whilst connected to my power supply. The same also applies to the 2.5mm jack plug that connects to my NEQ6 mount.
The silicone cable is nice and supple which shpuld help to avoid any potential cable wrap problems problems all in all a good investment in my opinion and one I would recommend to any one.
The service from FLO was exceptional ordered Friday delivered on Saturday and on a bank holiday as well
Keep up the good work
Fantasic flexible cable and plenty long enough too!

I bought one of these cables to power my EQ3-2 after a previous cable failed. I felt that the silicone cable would be better at coping in the cold and (sometimes) damp conditions.
I have been using this for a few months now and haven't had any problems. Recomended to anyone looking for a versatile cable.
