I was just asking those questions recently and this is what I learned as best I remember:

RFS used to have some durability issues but that seems to have been solved in the last several years.
RFS requires a different connector than Andrew which also requires a type of glue or sealant that takes 24 hrs for full cure.
RF Performance is about the same and now life expectancy should be about the same.

Anyone else feel free to jump in and correct or add to this.

I'm looking for some 1 5/8" hardline and comparing Cablewave/RFS VS Andrew cable. What are your thoughts on those two brands? The  Cablewave/RFS is much cheaper, is it good cable?
