Used the whole drum and not had any problems will certainly continue to use this from screwfix.

No problems with it. Works fine, bends fine & strips fine.

I have used this cable a few times when Screwfix has been much closer than the wholesalers...and regretted it every time. It's the same price as you pay elsewhere (within 10p) but the cable it inferior in quality. While I agree with other reviewers that it is easy to bend and work, this comes at the the expense of the durability of the outer sheath which feels rough, thin and cheap compared to others. Would also echo what others have said that on the last reel I bought the sheath was virtually welded on to the insulation making it a nightmare to strip.
I also have my suspicions that you're more likely to get lower IR readings when using this cable but I don't have anything to back this up (and I don't intend to buy any more to convince myself). Guess that's only a problem if you're going to test though...
