      Scott & Steve,
      I never dealt with either product before. Plenty of UTP and twinax
      though. We are using the Andrew product as we acquired a bunch of it from
      an AMPS cell site de-install. Most of the connectors will be re-used
      though did order new heat shrink & silicone grease.
