Yes, #8 is correct, SOOW.  You will need lots of pennies in your pocket the stuff is around $4.00 a foot where I live in Cleveland OH.

Look on Amazon at cords that are already assembled. I bought a 100' 6-4 with 50A C type connectors for less than $400.00, which with connectors was a killer price at the time. It is sold by Southwire. I have a couple different adapters for different receptacles to cover different venues. This way I am always covered. Or at least so far so good.

Is the SEOW a typo?  That is not a bargain if it is not SOOW. SOOW is just a bit about the $4 a foot range.

It is SEOOW. At that time I bought it was $4.50 per foot plus buying the connectors and having to install. To buy pre-assembled for $379.00 was a better deal for me. Actually it may have been a little more per foot when I ask for a quote, it has been several months. I just remember for me to buy the 100' of cable without connectors was more than buying a cord completed.

The issue is SE is less than 1/2 the price of SO.  To me it feels the same as SJ even though some of the properties are superior to SO. 

Plastic cable just doesn’t belong on a stage.  It doesn’t sit flat and sure doesn’t roll correctly.
