Nor are the UF versions when making a lot of connections. The jacket is
a rubber like material that does not adhere to the braid. This makes the
use of regular strippers problematic at best and useless at worst. Well,
actually I've had the jacket tare which meant cutting off the end and
I am a fan of the LMR series cables, but I am not a fan of the UF
versions. The jacket is not only difficult to work with, but has a
relatively short life compared to the regular LMR cables or Davis
BuryFlex(TM). I had to replace all of the pigtails to the antennas in
the big array after less than 8 years.
