This is a very slick shift cable to use. Installation is easy and the cable is a very smooth and slippery in the cable housing. I did not install this in the 9000 or 6800 (installed on 7900). I was very careful and scraped the coating off the cable where it is clamped in with the fixing bolt, paranoid of cable clamp slippage. Not cheap, but a very smooth and slick cable.
