What indeed.

I'm sure PSW would appreciate a Product Review if you get a chance…or maybe just a thread about it versus others you have tried in the past.

Sorry, my participation is kinda hit and miss these days, in both places...

Not much to tell, really. We had a sudden need for this kind of cable (new powered monitor rig, immediately went out on a 7-week job) and were referred to the Six-2 guys. Which redirected us to Triclops. We got the cables and a power supply, which consists of a box with an L14/30 inlet and 8 Powercon breaker-equipped outlets. Very well-made and constructed. I haven't compared pricing to the others available, but since we have another need for these cables coming up soon, we probably will since we won't be so crunched for time.

However, it better be a LOT cheaper and have really good reviews, as our experience with Triclops was first-rate on everything - communication, delivery time, quotes, appearance, quality, it's just hard to imagine better.

Rapco/Horizon have one.  So does Whirlwind, though they don't seem to know it.  CBI has one.
Horizon does not. Just checked.

Thanks to everyone who chimed in with suggestions.
I ended up going with the Gepco PA-2. It appears very rugged but is also very flexible. It has 3 x 14awg conductors for power and 2 x balanced pairs.
It was quite easy to work with, stripping, soldering etc, certainly better than the Percon stuff.
So far I recommend it, hopefully it holds up well over time.
