      The current Phillystran is the second generation. The first one needed 
the potting heads for end terminations since the jacket was too stiff to bend.

     The current stuff has a softer jacket plus they had Preformed Products 
design special grips for it so you don't need the potting heads anymore. You 
can still get the potting goop from Phillystran if you need to pot any old
