Outstanding  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
ABR website is very easy to navigate. Payment processing without problems. Shipped the next business day, with email to me that shipment was given to USPS. Free shipping over $75 purchase with USPS Express delivery. Arrived as advertised with the green weather proof end-caps protecting the PL-259 (the connectors I ordered). Highest quality connection of the PL-259 to the coax. The coax itself has all the quality criteria that I was looking for and was easy to handle, will most likely choose it again for my next antenna. What I did not at first realize, was that this coax that I ordered is not the "LMR-400UF", it is the ABR Industries equivalent.

By the way: NOT every coax may be used inside a building. This coax ( /U or UF ) has fire-retardant within.
