    Default Ancor vs. Almo cable?

    Both are BC5W2 cables, but the Almo is half the price of the Ancor?

    I'm finding (locally) 2/0 Ancor at 11.99/ft, and the Almo is 6.05/ft. Both made in USA, both BC5W2 standard - the one thing the Almo doesn't say on the sheathe is "diesel resistant" etc. Ancor does.

    Both are ABYC compliant, 105C and 600V rated.....

    Any thoughts on the Almo, good or bad? I'm thinking about using it for the negative paths, and possibly the Ancor for the positive. That is if Almo gets back to me and says that the reason there's no "diesel resistant" is because it's not, LOL.

    Aw, no one? Well, I'll post a reply when Almo gets back to me on it.
