A good, flexible connector between stomp boxes, the right angled plug is a good feature. The screw on housing around the plugs becomes very loose though. Since I play mainly for my own entertainment it isn't a big deal. If I were a gigging musician I'd probably use the cables that have plastic or rubber housings around the plugs so I wouldn't have to screw around with it.

I've had the cable for 3 years, and never really liked it. First off, if you attempt to wind it up, the cloth wrapping will easily burn you if it slides too fast. Secondly, the PVC jacket at both ends comes off easily. When you attempt to remove the cable from your instrument, the jacket will just slide off in your hand. Thirdly, the metal screw comes undone by itself, and the cable tips will rattle. I guess I'm just not pleased with the low quality of something I have to use all the time. A cable may be the wrong place to save money...

    Pretty awesome. Love the tweed. Very durable and doesn't kink. Love it but it's a bit loose when plugged in to guitars and amp. Not to bad though.

          Comments about Fender Custom Shop Performance Series Instrument Cable:

          Let's be honest, Fender markets a fair amount of low quality, over priced products including cables. Not this one. It is excellent, well made, and quiet. I have been using a Fender premium platinum cable (sadly no longer made) for years in my rig, from my pedals to amp, and it is still going strong. I bought the 18 foot, which I find to be a very practical length. I did wait for a sale though.

              I'm a pro level player of over 25 yrs. playing. I currently own and use the 5ft, 10ft, and 4 patch cables in tweed for a couple of years now. Love them, never had a problem, sound good and well constructed. I've seen at least 2 recent videos where Eric Clapton is using this same cable. So all the negative reviews must be people who got a lemon or just are abusive towards their cables.

                        My needs are modest, and for all the previously stated reasons I enjoy using these cables to practice guitar around the house. I've read where one user found the cable unusable due to the plug's loose fitting in his guitar's input jack. My experience is that while the plug works okay, the fitting is still a tiny bit loose. I compared connectors on all three of my Fender cables and discovered that on the 10' cable the build quality is superior and the fit improved over the 5' cables. Go figure. Comapared to a Dimarzio, the fit is not as snug nor is the casting of the connector as good. But then Dimarzio is twice the price. On balance, I have no problem buying additional Fender Custom Shop tweed cables, but then I'm not a gigging musician.

                            Appears in the catalog to be a slightly heavier cord than any regular cord. But, you will be suprised at its superior performance in every possible measure. Quality materials and construction. Never tangles. I have several, have given them as Christmas presents to very impressed and appreciative recipients. I threw everything else away.
