Labgear RG59BU Coaxial Cable 50m Black
Bought in error
Seeing the term "coax cable" made me think this was suitable for TV aerial to TV link but when I later checked on RG59 spec realised it was more for CCTV and video-linking. Thankfully I hadn`t opened the wrapping and Screwfix did an exchange plus cash for "proper" coax. Both varieties came as 50 metre rolls (held by wrapper and cable-end covers) so I put the right one in a bucket to avoid other reviewers` frustration of loose and tangled coils all over the floor and pulled the end from the centre. (A reel must add to the cost but as a DIY-er I think a Xmas sweet tin with a hole in the side should hold the coil but at the same time allow one to pull the cable out as as required.....)

Why isn't this on a reel?
I have no issue with the cable itself, TV picture is fine, but why doesn't this come on a reel? It comes wrapped in clear plastic and as soon as you remove this and try to pull some cable out it turns into a tangled mess that takes time to sort out...
Unless you are of a very patient nature I would spend a bit more money and get cable on a reel...
