Best control cable ?

The mechanism inside my throttle control box has failed, wear and tear. Easy fix with second hand parts, I hope. However, I thought why not renew the old control cables while I'm at it.

So, question is, what's the best make of control cables for super smooth operation ?

Teleflex Extreme cables bought and fitted. Trialled today and what a difference ! Compared to my old ones these are very silky smooth indeed. Having said that, my old ones were without doubt knackered, causing excess strain inside the control box resulting in worn internal cam plates etc. A new one of them now needed as well !!! The joys.
