The wire does its job and have never had any issue with connectivity. The issues I have with the wire ties to how rigid the wire is and the cloth material used to wrap the wire. It is more of a nylon material vs. a softer cotton material. Makes it tough to unwrap the wire and get the natural fall of the wire. Takes quite a bit of time to get the bends out.
I decided to make a vintage style lamp myself and wanted some period specific stuff to go with it. This cord is very nice and well built. It is easy to work with, cut and shows well. I built a desk lamp and had this running so it was visible so I hoped it would look better than your typical plastic-coated stuff and it far exceeded my expectations. The 25 feet was far more than I needed, but left me with enough slack to easily make 2 more lamps down the road so I have no complaints. The color was a dark black, and the fabric is nice and smooth, no catches or snags. It is easy to use and looks awesome.
Great product ...HOWEVER the wire is tightly wrapped around a piece of cardboard. If you plan to hang a bulb from it it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to remove the kinks. I've ordered 5 "rolls" of the wire and the first 2 were not kinked.
