I used to avoid cables with molded ends, but I haven't had a peep of trouble out of either of the cables. Plus, if you're playing live and move around onstage, you'll REALLY appreciate a cable flexible enough to stay out of your way.
I REALLY like this cable! I had bought a much more expensive cable, "scientifically designed for bass guitar, etc.", It was nice, BUT it was a real pain onstage. Not flexible at all! It would lie under your feet in big ropy coils. Despite its high price, it started losing connection - oddly, only on amps with COSM modeling. There's probably a scientific explanation, but there weren't any scientists around and I needed to finish the gig, so I grabbed my spare, which happened to be the 20 foot version of this cable. Even though it was way longer than I needed, I immediately flipped over how flexible it was. And I couldn't hear a difference between it and the scientifically designed cable! So I ordered a shorter one, and never looked back!
I've used the long one as a backup for several years. Used it many times when other people's cables failed, or to hook up a powered cabinet now and then. Never a peep of trouble. I like the little grippers on the shaft - they seem to help make a very positive connection.
It cost less than a fourth of what my fancy cable cost, works just as well, and stays nice and flat on the floor when I'm playing.

I'm verrry disapointed with these cables. The only reason I put four for value, is because I basically got them for free as a gift when I bought a bunch of DAdario strings. The quality is horible. I used them for a couple months, and not often at all. One shorted out. I decided it was probably the jacks. I changed them, and put some switchcraft jacks on, and the cable still didn't work. evidently, the cable itself shorted somewhere, for no obvious reason (no signs of wear, tear or anything). Then another two of my four cables stopped working too. I think it's a disgrace for Planet Waves. I really wanted these cables, because supposedly, they use really good cable, and have less noise and all that. Well ofcourse they have less noise; because they don't work! DON'T BUY THIS JUNK. Spend your money on a cable where you can re-solder the jack if you have to, and all that....

      I used this cable at home for a few months, never really putting it to the test of heavy abuse. The 4 times I brought it to a studio for practice wore it out. Shorted out and worthless.

          Completly died in the middle of performance without warning. Only had the cable for a month and took reasonable care of it. There was no previous indications of shorts or signal loss, just completly died.

            I bought the 20' cable so that I could move a little further from the amp. Never did get to even play through this one. The moment I plugged in there was so much noise it was unbelievable. Went back to the old cable and all was peace and harmony. Never had another Planet Waves cable so maybe I just got a bad one but I was hugely disappointed after seeing so many positive reviews.

                    Professional cable provides superior sound transfer from your string machine to sound box. Don't be frightened, what looks like a skinny snake is actually one of the best cables you will ever use. Your sound will zip from A and zap to B assisting you in creating delicious, ear spectrals to share with friends and family. Even if you have a neck beard, you need this cable.

                      I haven't had much exposure to Planet Waves cables but of the 3 I bought a few months ago, 1 works great, one doesn't stay seated in the jack and 1 stopped working. I'm NOT a touring professional so they are not experiencing the wear and tare that these cables should be able to endure.

                      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Classic Instrument Cable Straight-Angle:

                      I bought the Planet Waves 10ft cable because I needed a cable for practice at home. At first the cable worked fine, but after 2 months it started to fall out of the input jack. Besides the cable falling out of the jack, another problem I had was that the signal would cut out and I would have to unplug the cable and plug it back in for it to work. I know that my amp was not causing the problem because I used a different cable and the problem went away.Save your money don't buy this cable; it's over priced and cheaply made.

                      Comments about D'Addario Planet Waves Classic Instrument Cable Straight-Angle:

                      I recently moved to an area where I had to buy a new, cheap amp and thought I'd need to return it after the first day of using it. Luckily I replaced my regular cable with one of these and I was amazed at the improvement. I'll admit the cable seems very flexible (and perhaps not as "durable" as other cables when it comes to abuse), but has been flawless for my hobby needs during the past year. I'm buying another one today.
