I am not sure I understand the frustration here.
The copper IS 100% copper (or rather 99.96%), then it is coating with a thin layer of tin for corrosion protection.
There is 99.96+% copper, then there is 99.96+% copper which is tinned.
There are some products that use CCA mixed in with the copper to off set costs. in some cases 30%, in other cases as much as 70%. The FA stuff has absolutely zero aluminum and the copper is 99.96% (industry 100%) copper.
If you are upset because we did not disclose that it was tinned, please realize I was unaware that it was tinned when I posted the product on the site, and I just added it now. That was my mistake.

You are correct, the jacket is thick, but the rating is based on the gauge of the wire, not the pvc as explained in this video:
DIYMA.com Funkin' Audio 00 awg Cable - YouTube

As far as being 0 or 00 awg, check post 11 in this very thread where he did the math
https://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/1832022-post11.html

And as far as "getting what you pay for" I'll disagree.
That phrase is commonly used to insult inexpensive (and cheaply made) things, but unless you examine and compare the example product to the prices of other product of similar quality, it is kind of a baseless claim. You might be disappointed because the product is tinned, or has a thick jacket but you need to compare things:

Someone in this thread said this wire was bigger than Knu Kolossus, which is 0 awg, and sells for $3.95 psf.
That would make 25 square feet of KK $98.75 plus shipping. You paid half that.

So in essence, you did not get what you paid for, you got one hell of a deal.

In either case, Send it back and I will give you a full refund. Product price and the shipping you paid when you purchased it.

Guys, I don't understand the gripe against Tinned OFC Stranded Copper. If you think for a second that there's a massive voltage fluctuation due to Pure Copper, guess again. Ask yourself this question:
What Metal(s) compose the Battery Terminals on the posts?

No insults were intended! If my previous posts seem that way I truly apologize! I've seen the videos and gave it a lot of thought before buying the wire and I still believe its a hell of a deal. Other brands of CCA would have cost that much or more! I agree with you on that. The videos did a great job explaining what the FA wire is all about. I'm sure you honestly didn't know about the wire being tinned or else you would have stated that! No prob! I began to second guess my purchase when I thought it may have been something else besides OFC and another member agreed. I hate buying things and not being told the full truth about the product! But in this case, I understand that you honestly didn't know and were even kind enough to offer a refund plus the shipping costs! I greatly appreciate that! It really means a lot!

I will surrender with no shame! Again, I apologize for any statements posted that may have seemed insulting. The "Pay what ya get for" was kind of taken the wrong way. It was not used to describe the wire as inexpensive or cheap. I could make some analogies but I have a feeling someone will try to twist it and cause me to do more typing!

BTW: After doing some quick online research, I learned that theres not really that much of a difference between 100% OFC vs. the Tinned OFC here. Just my opinion. Do your own research.
**I'm not trying to start a full war of "which is better wire" so just decide for yourself**

Ahhhhh that explains it. I thought it was aluminum with a little bit of copper mixed in

Once we go down under 30 rolls we railed the prices by $10.
That happened before we decided to have the sale.

We only have a limited amount of these left now and plan on increasing prices once we hit 30. WHich we are under
