Thank you Danny, I am glad you cleared up my confusion.
I would also suggest adding a 1" diameter 100% cotton rope in the center of the braid. The braid pops open by pushing it together lengthwise. get the rope* inside and the braid can be pulled back down over it tightly (I suggest wearing leather or fabric gloves to pull the braid back down saves your skin Teflon is really hard... Anyway to get the braid tight against the rope twist it back and forth a little bit while pulling it out, letting one hand slide along the cable while pulling. works great.
1" rope .If you could find a smooth 1 1/2" rope even better. but I never found one.
Also I wonder about the long pigtails at the ends. just a waste of the design. when I made my 'other brand' set I left the ends braided as close as I could leave them so only about 1/2" at the end not braided. It is true this made it harder to keep the wire lined up to get into the ends (I used WBT connectors, and WBT sleeves so easier... But is possible to do and looks way better.
*Taping/glue the very ends of the rope so the end does not unravel as you push it inside) really helps, I also trimmed/tapered the end of the rope just the last 1/2" in a cone shape to look better in the ends. It is very hard to judge the exact length of rope needed
For a perfectionist you might conplete adding in the rope once and then measure and take that rope out if too short. or trim it if too long. but then the second cable you will have the ability to measure the rope correctly from the first one.
Also is the insulation of The GR cable Teflon? as that is the main reason the Kimber is expensive. Plus the Teflon takes a long time to break in vs poly. The Teflon will sound 'bright' for weeks..
