jonhirsh said:So your saying you put a band of colour every 5' so you just add up the bands of colour to tell how long a cable is?
This sounds horribley enefficent, Try some heat shrink with printed length lablels. and use a colour code to determine the type of cable. or use a printed length with a single colour band to determine length such as red for 8' green for 16' blue for 32' white for 56' etc......
White. 75' is white, has always been white, and much more prevalent than purple+orange.... FWIW, the color code There is a code for 75', but it's fallen out of use in place of purple+orange, so I couldn't even tell ya what it is off the top of my head.
