Default Whirlwind cables ?

Are Whirlwind mic cables supposed to be any good ? A client has some
that the sheath appears to have gone slack on, with twist of the
internal pair clearly visible.

The main problem is that there is an open cct in the screen, and it is
NOT at either connector, and there is no obvious damage anywhere else !

They claim to have not been stretched or mis-wound.

** Internal pairs are normally twisted round each other, many times per foot.

** Well, they would say that - wouldn't they ?

That's not normal. Send it back to Whirlwind and I'll bet that unless
the see evidence that it's been run over by a fork lift or something
similar, they'll replace it for free.

But not generally extremely visibly from the outside !

Broken-screen-wise yes prob ably. But the other thing is the whole
length of 2 cables the same, as if the sheath has somehow degraded. I
suspect it may be a heat thing, usually being stored in a car boot.
