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
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.
