My 1st cable was a grey coily cable from radio shack.... wish I had it for posterity. THe bullet cables are much nicer and they have these cool shell-casing jack covers.
Its hard to break or tangle up a coily cable and they kinda attenuate some of your extreme highs in a good way. Not great if you run a big FX rig without buffers or just use long cables or whatever, but they work well for me from guitar to tuner. If I want all my top end hyper-sparkle I use a spectraflex usually. I recommend these cables to srat/marshall players. They're like subtle EQ that will allow you to run your plexi flat out without a bunch of harsh in the bridge or quack positions.
