New clutch cable STIFF

Just installed a clutch cable a stock one in my car, and at first it was fine , but now it's seriously very very very very very stiff
It's hard to even drive , there's no adjustment on it, any idea what might be wrong?
I got it from a local auto parts store for 80.00

I checked to see if it was binded up anywhere but no luck, I installed everything correctly

You just learned a valuable lesson. NEVER buy a non OEM clutch cable. NEVER.

Compare an aftermarket one with an OEM one here. Guess which one is stock and which one is like the one you got.

Also from your other thread

Buy the MM quadrant and a Fiore micro click adjuster and be done with it. Also hopefully your cable is OEM. If not, you need an OEM cable which MM sells too.
