Are cables with PS/2 heads but the other side is left to be solder onto a PCB available?

Yes


Do I just message you for that or am I just blind and don't see the option on the website?

My guess would be you add it to the "special instructions" box :)

^

Click custom with ps/2 end and leave sleeving preference and end preference in special instructions.

Thank you! :)

Oh wow I didn't even see the "all page" until you posted the above TJ! - http://www.mimic-cables.com/collections/all

You offer so many options and the prices are VERY good :)

I'm worried I'm pricing my audiophile stuff "too low" but we'll see.

What would you recommend to have something similar for a phantom?

Could this be done with male and female mini/micro whichever it is, usb cables?

Yeah, this could be done easily with a small male mini usb to female (mini/micro/usb a) and then a male (to match whichever end you chose) to male usb a

Hey man,

I ordered through the Live order form, is that still an option?  Would you like me to re-order somewhere else?  I ordered two cables in total. 

Thanks man!

The google docs thing?

I don't have access to that.  Easiest way to order is through mimic-cables.com (I think the price is cheaper, too, but don't quote me on that).

If it's not too much trouble, would you mind taking a photo of a few pink-toned sleeving sections next to each other?  I'm interested in these (all paracord):
* pink frost (multicolor)
* pink camo (multicolor)
* sneaky pink (multicolor)
* cotton candy (multicolor)
* rose pink (solid color)

Sorry if this is a bother--no worries if you're too busy for this!

Given that you've been swimming in CCnG, do you have any sleeving that would be a good match for that colorway? I'd prefer something in the green family, but if you have something matching the cream, that would make for a good second.

I love Kelly Green Camo paracord--that could look nice with CCnG.  Though it usually has white bits, not cream.

thanks

Sure absolutely. I'll shoot you a PM.

Hey TJ what is your connection with the "old" mimic cable?  I never actually got this taken care of before Mistake left and it is now completely frayed.  Are you taking over?  Should I go through techkeys?

Hello,

Would it be possible to get a quick break down of the durability and flexibility of each cable option? Maybe on a 1-10 scale.

Sorry of this has already been asked/answered.

I just took a look at those links, but neither seem to go over the carbon fiber and kevlar options.

Between steel and silver which is more flexible? is there any difference in overall cable thickness when full assembled?

Silver silica is going to be thinner and more flexible than stainless steel, but it would be a massive difference.  It's enough to notice/feel, though and could cause issues with cable channels.

Carbon fiber and kevlar are similar in thickness and flexibility, but carbon is kinda coarse and a bit sticky where the kevlar is smooth.  They're both a weave like other techflex stuff, but kevlar also has a better coverage than carbon, too.
