Well guy's i managed to get my hand's on some cable to compare to. Much thanks to my friend doug at the shop who hooked me up. But i did the review of the SHOK INDUSTRIES competition series cable v.s. many diffrent brands i will list here with pics/info.

*JL Audio
* cheap bs local brand(you guy's will laugh at this one)
*Knukonceptz KLM
* IXOS
*Kicker HyperFlex

Ok so we'll start off here with the JL Audio cable this cable isn't to bad in flexibility but SHOK ftw by far way more flexible & also beat em in strand count. Also the JL cable i deff not like how you stripped it and many many strands fell out of the wire before even twistinging deff...wasn't a fan of that.
As you can see in this pic if the strands that fell off the JL wire on my bed sad. But deff SHOK INDUSTRIES FTW. Also where the JL Cable is tinned copper and with only 4,753 strands where the Shok wire is 5200 strands of 100% pure copper.


The JL cable i could only twist around my arm twice before tighting where the Shok shit it's like spaghetti lol.

SHOK FTMFW. As you can see the shok wire there is just no boundaries with it's flexibility of this wire.

This wire i got friend friend at this local bs shop he went to he said so so sad. This almost want's to make you cry haha it's like 4awg strands in trying to look like a 1/0awg insulation. I just laughed so hard when i saw this.

uptop shot of the bs 1/0awg next to TRUE 1/0awgSHOK FTW.

Flexibility of this bs local 1/0awg is just sad. Can't believe people actually buy this and think it's 1/0awg.

Once again the flexibity of this wire is down right SAD. Shit wire itself is horrible.

Shok wire next to what cartunes here uses mostly which is this company called IXOS cable. The flexibility of this wire next to the shok well thing about this IXOS barely ANY flexibility what so ever. Also strand count i did not like either.

IXOSv.s. the SHOK. The IXOS wire personal opinion i hated it twisted like shit the flexibility basically wasnt any at all very sad company if you ask me for wire.

Like i said like no flexibility of the IXOS wire. I went to bend that wire once and it wouldn't even hold it's curve not even for 5mins the shok is just flexible as all can be hold its curve easy.

Now im sure we all know the Kicker hyperflex cable very good cable i deff would say this cable very nice v.s. the SHOK the flexibility nice but less then shok same goes as strand count but was nice wire but v.s. the SHOK id deff overtake the SHOK Industries competition cable anyday.
Side by side shot Shok industries wire on the left Kicker hyperflex on the right.

Flexibility of the kicker hyperflex im sure we all know but the SHOK industries wire was deff more flexible. But id have to save this was deff a close close call both cables nice none the less but the Shok wire took the win.

Now my last cable i compared the Shok industries competition cable to was the Knukonceptz KLM now i ran KNU but i never liked the flexibilty issues this wire had. But the strands are alright but the SHOK wire just PWNS. plus the KLM is just copper clad also. Here's pics 4 u guys of the shok wire v.s. Knu side by side shot.

Like i said flexibility just isnt there with the Knu KLM wire. Im sure you guy's also know how much HELL the KLM wire can be workn with when it gets cold. It's solid basically lol.


If i can also get my hands on some

*Rockford fosegate 1/0awg
*American bass

I also plan on comparing the SHOK INDUSTRIES competition cable to those cables also.

Well guy's also lusies will be sendn me a small run of Knukonceptz Flex cable also to compare the Shok Industries competition cable to also. So be on the look out for that guys.
