    I am needing the same thing Matt. I dug this page up, maybe some folks have other ideas on what they have used.

    UFlex Mach or SeaStar TFX, basically the same performance, I prefer the UFlex.

    I've used other stuff from Uflex and been really happy with the quality. Was not aware they also had cables.

    You can also get a reverse box from Hardin that won't require you to loop the cable.

    I'd go with a "Mach 3" cables, super smooth and can handle tight radius', they come in OEM configurations and standard 33c series.

    Not on any cable made in the last 20 years, it will ruin them.
