Those look nice, though I'm on the fence with which I like better. It would have to be a certain quality of wire for me to do that because I wouldn't want to have kinks in the smaller diameter leads show up. Some wire is stiff enough that it can get little bends in it that don't come out. If the strands are fine and multiple enough and the insulation thick enough you don't get that, so I'll look into it.

Where are the splitters sourced and how is the TechFlex sheathing fastened under the splitter to keep from pulling away from them?

I've been getting my materials from Doug, at douglasconnection.com

Great guy and great to work with!

I secure my tech flex with electrical tape. Nice and clean.

I really like these. Especially the thinner red and black techflex

Those are absolutely gorgeous! Very high quality work and superior photos of them. Congrats on the job, I'm going to try that with the next ones I do, though I prefer the locking banana plugs from Blue Jeans Cable (in the same polished gunmetal finish.)

BJC is just too expensive. I use the GLS locking plugs I get from Amazon.

Having said that, I do use knukonceptz ss wire. I order it in 100' though so the cost is manageable.

Does anyone know what size techflex to use for Canare 4S11 wires? It's a bi-wire set up. I would need 4 individual jackets for each wire.

I've never sleeved the conductors, couldn't say. I know somewhere in this thread there is a size table of sorts, but it's buried in here, best of luck, sorry I couldn't have been more helpful.
