So, I'm looking at some Planet Waves guitar cables online, and I've noticed there are "standard" ones that I can get for less than £10 for a 10footer.
Or these "custom" ones that cost nearly twice as much.

Could anybody please explain the difference between them?
Is it worth buying these "custom" ones of the standard?

Thankyou

EDIT: Neither of the cables have any angular ends before you ask

If you make $10million a year and have a $250,000 live guitar rig, then, by all means, go custom.

But if you want a cable that does what it's meant to do just get the standard one.

Planet Waves won't sell you a crappy cable, and I don't see the point in paying extra for one that will probably sound just the same

Just my opinion on the matter though.

I read an article on them earlier today, and the custom ones just have more sheilding for removal of noise and gold tips. BUT there bets one has like a mute switch on the end of it so when you change guitars or something theres no noise, which i thought was cool but thats only useful if you play live.

But if you put the amp on standby, you don't need that

not everyone knows that if you unplug the guitars, it 'bangs'. besides, hitting a knob on the cable jack is way easier than going to the amp and putting it on standby.

And some tube amps don't even have standby switches.
