SDI Cable flexible- other options- belden 1505f

Hi, I currently use a lot of belden 1505f for my cabling. I am looking for something (in the same or lower price range) for new cables. I want to get good long runs (if I can 100m @ 3g). I am looking for somethign with the same quality but a bit more flex than 1505f. 50m+ I put on a cable drum, but the shorter lengths of the 1505f are a pain to roll. I have seen some other nice heavy rubberixed rugged cables, but if anyone has particular experience with something good (and eurpean suppliers) it would be great to know.

Cheers

Fred

Try Canare 3/6G SDI cable, the most flexible cable I have used, works well for long camera cable runs also.

Teach yourself how to "over-under" wrap the cable. Then stiffness isn't such a problem.

@Denny Smith, any ideas in the cable series? Is this it?

@MambaFiber.com, There is no other way to roll cables but over and under, but no manner of rolling will change the plasticity of a cable.

No, I was referring to http://www.canare.com/ProductItemDispla ... ItemID=247, L5.5C series Ultra low loss cable or the L-5C series cable rated for 3G HD SDI.
