Phillystran is  really limber

That's the truth!  With 1/4 inch Philly it is the only way to  go.  I put one 
end in a vice and then put a cable grip on the very end of  the Philly and 
tightened it with a come-along using my truck trailer  hitch for the other end. 
It is about 20 times easier to do it that way  rather than use a "limp" piece 
of  Philly.
By the way, talk to the guys at PLP.  I am pretty sure you can  eliminate the 
middle man for the grips.  The problem is you have to put in  a $500 minimum 
order.....and get them in boxes of 25 or 50.
