I purchased this to match my other braided chrome cables and it looked great when I got it. Over time, it became very hard to pull. Better after lubing with the proper lube but shouldn't have to that soon. My biggest complaint is that the cable no longer matches my others since this one is yellowing. My other cables are older and still look new. This one has a yellow tint to it. Must replace it but looking into a Magnum this time. They boast some sort of polymer that keeps it from yellowing. We will see. Wanted to add a photo but couldn't get it to look right. You have to have the light hit it at the right angle for it to look yellow and the camera flash doesn't do it.
