Need Help Picking a Reliable Nonbreaking Clutch Cable??

I've had a tough time keeping a clutch cable in my car. both cables i've had in the past year and a half have been UPR's "Heavy Duty Adjustable Clutch Cable".. and they have both snapped..

just encase it's relevant, I have the triple hook quadrant and also the firewall adjuster.. and i've also been told from some other mustang people to stay away from adjustable cables from after market companies and stick with OEM or FRPP...

here are my choices, but please tell me which one you think will/has worked the best and been proven durable..

Granatelli (non-adjustable)

Ford Racing (adjustable)

my OEM has never had any issues, how stiff is your clutch, and do you require a clutch that stiff that it brakes cables

Adjustables are junk. Get a stock replacement cable like has been suggested. If you need adjustment, get a firewall adjuster.

ram powergrip clutch,its really pretty stiff, didn't want a slipping clutch while i was spraying.. so yes and no.. i wouldn't recommend it for everyday driving..

i think i'm gunna order oem.. did some research on the forum as well as other forums and oem wins by a landslide.. and now i'm kicking myself for giving my oem clutch cable away a few months back. lol

Little late, but definitely OEM all the way.
