Re: Cable ?

Learn to load them. I've dipped them and liked the results but usually just boil in baking soda.

Re: Cable ?

spray paint them lite brown. All you need to do. I've always ended up with slower loop closures and chalky look after boiling them in Baking soda and water. But I may be doing it wrong too. So try it and see what your results are like.

Re: Cable ?

I dip mine in brown Formula 1 about twice and let hang a couple weeks. Run the lock back and forth a couple times to make sure there isn't any dip fouling the hole in the lock. They come out about the color of dark straw and nearly disappear when you hang them.

Re: Cable ?

You don't have to boil in baking soda to get that gray patina look. Simply dissolve baking soda in cold water and let the cable sit in there for about 3 days. When they dry they will look the same as if you boiled them in baking soda.

After the baking soda treatment, I dip mine once in brown formula one. You want to talk about something that disappears, this is it. New cable dipped in Formula One still has a sheen to it even after multiple dips. My method makes them slick and dull.
I load all my snare cable too. Makes a big difference for how I use them.
