Poor old Vdh; I have some Vdh cables, carbon and 'normal'. They are like all other cables in that specific cable seem to suit specific systems. They are certainly not my favourite....but the extreme views expressed here aren't that useful. Vdh will work just fine in some applications. Horses for courses chaps....I especially like Cardas and some LFD cables, but so what. It is what you like, not what other people tell you to like.
