After having numerous issues obtaining connectors or parts for Andrew line, I have pretty much started using Cablewave for everything.  After the sale of Andrew they started constantly changing connectors AND then never kept parts for older versions of the connectors.  I just waited 2 months for the delivery of a rebuild kit for an air spewing 1-5/8in flange connector.

With that said...  Neither is as strong or heavily built as they once were.  All the physical strength is now in the plastic jacket and the copper shield is not much more than heavy foil.

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?
