Big time saver! Saw some folks complain about the stiffness of 12/2, but I didn't have that experience. Maybe they should have gone with 14/2? This isn't anything like as hard as the really old #12 in my house, that stuff is stiff! This was great. Just punch the knockouts in the boxes, and click the flex conduit into place. Finish the wiring. No cutting, no end fitting assembly. If you can find it in the length you need, it is really fast. I used it to add a GFCI extension for power to a new air compressor location.

    Product met my expectation as to what I was looking for. Easy to install. Just wish that it was available in 6 foot length like the 14/2 cable. Due to it's 8 foot length had to route it a different way.

      terrible
      This cable didn’t work. Infact it arched when I turned the power back on. Upon close inspection I notice multiple knicks in the conductors which caused a arc fault. Thankfully i have siemens AFCI breakers installed which tripped

        This is definitely armored cable. Cutting it males threading the clip on the end difficult, but not unexpectedly so.
