Teleflex throttle cables

I currently have "0172" standard teleflex throttle cables from a Yamaha control unit to a Yamaha 50H engine. However, a some stage a kink has developed right where the cable goes into the brass gland by the outboard - this means that throttle control takes a lot of strength (not good) to change the revs.

The question for the panel is - whilst I am replacing both cables, should I go to the 33c Supreme cable (about 20 for a 3m length) or just stick with the standard one ? The Supreme apparently gives 45% less resistance for longer runs (and a 4" bend radius which would be useful) - but I just want a far easier to use throttle !

You know you want to!

Based on my experiences of going for a premium type from this lot

the extra spend is not something I've regretted. More because they just had the look of something which would last longer - the old ones got stiff within the first couple of years and died after about 4.

"Buy cheap and you'll buy twice" is a motto which has served me well over the years!
