VXL7 cable needs "V7" connectors. The various Heliax cables have 
different center conductor diameters because of the different dielectric 
properties. I believe I have some V7 connectors if you need them.

For ham use there is no functional difference between LDF7, AVA7, and 
VXL7 coax - whatever you can get for a good price and get connectors for.

I have a fair amount LDF7 and AVA7 in stock at a good price, with lots 
of 7/16 DIN female connectors, and a few N connectors...Detroit area.
