Hi Geggen

With earlier HB devices already 100m cables were used without problem.
I would take the cable of estockable, the shielding braid is at the same time a good strain relief.
Plugs are just another possible source of error.
For all other questions regarding Towfish you will find here in the forum rich information.

hi
I use the destockable ethernet câble 7a on all my towfish, the last use : 100 m with hélix 12 G2, no problem, and now 50 m with an hélix G3...verry good !!! >:D
but on this câble the  sheath that surrounds the wires was sensible to cut.
you must take care on jonction seal and do not take a verry small curve or fold it.
this câble is good and no expensive solution if you think change it frequently.
