Difference between galvanised & stainless steel cables?
#1
Hi guys

I know the difference between the 2 cables but how do I spot the difference between the 2? I have bought both cables and they will be delivered later this week. Is there a difference visually, feel wise?

Thanks

That is a bit of a tough one when they are new. Used it is easier to tell. They all differ somewhat from brand to brand too. I would say between the two I have. side by side
the galvanized have a dry look compared to the sheen on the stainless. Color wise side by side the galvanized look more silver/grey and the stainless more of a titanium look.
