I just received another GR Research 24 Strand Cable Kit from Danny. The first one was my brother's. This one is for me.
After reading the discussion about inserting rope and talking to Danny, I was curious about how easy it would be to install the rope.
I experimented with compressing the cable lengthwise to widen the center area.
Width of cable as received:
Width of cable with 5/8" rope inserted:
Width of cable with larger diameter such that the wires cross at a more perpendicular angle:
I think it looks really cool with the larger diameter.
It seems to stay in place pretty well if not moved around. I don't have pets or children so I suspect the cables would be safe. If bent, I could form them back into shape.
Has anyone experimented with the wider diameter?
