    Hello all ive been looking for 30 to 28 AWG copper (TIN in the worst case) Kynar wire for doing various PCB mods and modchip installs but everywhere I have looked ebay, amazon I cant find any good looking wire from the pics and dont trust China wire always had bad luck with quality from there.

    Are there any good recommended brands or what you prefer to use wire single strand wire would be AWSOME but multi strand works too thank you all and I look forward to your opinions :)

    If you don't trust Amazon or eBay, why not just shop on DigiKey?

    It'll be expensive, but you'll get exactly what you paid for. Not that there's anything wrong with Chinese wires as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm curious what wire have you been using that's not made in China? A few of the spools I have are branded KES and VT Corporation. AFAIK both are Chinese and I've been using the KES stuff for >20 years and never had a problem.
