Every thing is relative, but I'd not call $17 to $25 expensive.

I'd much prefer the RG-8X with shield plus braid.  More rugged, more 
flexible, sufficient voltage rating, and a larger (and much more 
flexible) center conductor.
I really don't like RG59 with that tiny, hard, easy to break center 
conductor except for things like TV and F-type connectors.
I use relatively short runs from the remote switches to the 40 meter, 
center fed, half wave dipoles and the legal limit.
