I'd like to ask what the postage problem was. It can be possible to get a better postage price by asking the seller e.g. Ray via email.

Has anyone tried asking for a certain wire thickness or spacing from this supplier? The price does seem reasonable. Thanks for sharing.

Not to rain on everyone's parade but I would be cautious with these. The listing indicates 80 mm spacing; a tad over 3 inch. Wire AWG I did not see mentioned but the reviews indicate problems either in quality or voltage drop. Also JST connectors judging by the photos.

These remind me of the cheaper strings I see on Amazon. I have some, purchased when I first started the hobby. They work, just need a bit more attention.

I have recently just got these the other day after waiting 2 months for them to arrive. the wire is very thin inside, every time I went to strip the wire it would break and also the data indicator was backwards but other than that they seem to ok
