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 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.

      I liked this cable at first: soft rubber, easy to grab connectors.
      But it failed after only a few sessions, making only intermittent connection.
      So I ended up throwing away my money.
      Lesson learned.

          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.

                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.

                The Best Instrument Cable Out There

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

                I got one of these a couple of weeks ago and the quality of this cable is awesome. It has warranty for life if you can mess it up then you can change it. It's not a regular cable that'll crack up in the middle of a show, it's worth every penny I recommend it.

                I use three of these 20'cables in my rig. I like them because they are easy to wind up and come with cable ties. I've exercised the lifetime guarantee on two that died on seperate occasions, and Planet Waves full-heartedly honored the agreement. A third one just died, so I'm about to find out if they'll help me out with this one too. If you carry spares at gigs, go for it. If not, you're going to need something more reliable.

                I got my first Planet Waves cable a few years ago and never looked back!! Ive always used the cheapest cables I could find intill one day I took one of these home and it made my whole set-up sound 10 times better!!! I never thought a cable could do that much but I was wrong!!!I know the price is a little more for these but its worth every extra penny!! I have never had any problems with mine.I have three long cables and a bunch of small patch cables for my foot pedals.They all work great and make my amps sound better and louder with no static or hum!! Do your self a favor and try one of these cales,,,,,you WONT regret it!!

                            These are GREAT instrument cables. I just bought two more. The oldest one I have is at least 10 years old, and still hasn't failed. I like them because they get the job done and are very flexible. They lie flat on the stage, something I really appreciate after using some fancier, heavier cables that I was always tripping over.

                                I bought this cable for my keyboard station. So far no crackling, or distortion. Thank you for the prompt delivery and service.

                                        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.
