Hi All

Which is the most important part of the RG6 CATV coax, the tinfoil shield
or the braid?

I have come into a bunch of different coax - they both have the tinfoil
wrapped insulation, but one has a lot more wire in the braid.

I would imagine the more braid the better, but what does the actual
shielding, the braid or the foil?  73 and thanks.
