About the cables - red and blue: TWIST red cables are the original memory-free, multi-strand, steel cable coated with red nylon. The TWIST Blue X-Flex interchangeable cables are a newer offering and are the same type cable as the red TWIST cable, just MORE flexible!
Note that cables can be connected to make longer cables with ChiaoGoo Connectors.
