Best housings to use w/PowerCordz prime cables?

Postby Fourthbook » Tue May 29, 2012 11:25 pm

Can anyone offer firsthand experience w/ housings that work with PowerCordz Prime cables better than the PC housing?

I love the idea of PowerCordz cables (color, light weight, don't stretch, etc.) but have had a struggle getting them installed properly (no room for error or re-dos given the limited # of blue grommets that come with the cables and the damage done to a cable when you tie it off), and it seems the PC housings are also very finicky (sensitive to bends and perhaps producing more drag/resistence/friction than other housings). Reading other forum threads on PowerCordz, I get the sense that people are successfully mixing/matching PC cables w/other housings like Nokon, Jagwire and I-Links. But I haven't found definitive results/experiences yet (if you know of other threads that provide such insight, please let me/us know).

I'd love to hear your experience w/ alternate housings used with PowerCordz Prime cables, whether for brakes or derailleurs, in the hope of gaining better performance while retaining the PC cable benefits.

Thanks,

John

I used them with Nokons a couple of years ago. They worked great.
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?

Used cordz with regular iLinks and not a problem .. I understand they are not suitable for mini iLinks
