      Yes! Preformed grips are precision devices and have to be used with the
specific cable they were designed for. For 3/16 inch there are 7 different
grades of cables and each has its own spec, size, lay, etc. DO NOT interchange
them. Your first clue is that they will be cheaper than the EHS versions.
