On a similar note what lengths do you guys use? Also what do you find using more 3ft, 5ft, 10ft, 15ft....?

It's time for me to stop using mic cables for DMX.

Where are you buying your DMX cable?
What cable are you using?
What ends are you using?

I love Clark & Wire DMX pro cable. Very good quality, wraps great and isnt a bad price ($.44). I also like Neutrik ends. I do all my mic cables with black xlr connectors, and all my DMX with silver.

Thanks

All of mine are custom becuase my setup never changes.  Handful of 1.5' jumpers between fixtures on T-bars, 5' lengths to go between tbars on truss, one 25' and one 50' (to go between stagebox and first fixture).   And yes, i run DMX through my snake, control lights from FOH and have no problems.

I have 6' (yellow heat shrink), 10' (white), 20' (green), 30' (blue), and 50' (red).  I need to order more cabling and may make a couple of 100's but I find 50' the longest I ever need.  If I need more than 50' the male conveniently plugs right into the female.  Same goes for XLR connectors.

We keep ours to the same lengths as our Socapex cable...multiples of 8.  8', 16', 32', 48', 72', 96'.  Which is, of course, the same length as a standard piece of truss.  The intention being, should we ever have to pre-build a truss structure, we can break it at the truss joint.  Or, easily array a truss length with socapex and DMX.
