This product was as described. It is 6-gauge solid copper wire. 50 feet. It behaved as all bare, solid copper wire has for me, so it was in fact 6-gauge solid copper wire. I was (and am) happy with this purchase. The price was acceptable. The delivery time-line was acceptable. When I picked it up at the store, the clerk was knowledgeable and friendly. Everything was fine. I ran this wire between the newly-installed subpanel and the original main panel. (The feeder cable was only 3-conductor, which was according to code back in the day.) Everything went swimmingly with the installation. I am a happy camper.

The wire was just as expected and with it being available by the foot, it is convenient to purchase when needed. I use this for craft projects rather than electrical applications and am very happy with its quality and value.
