Hi , will need to change my 6mtr coax run this spring.
Still on RG213 30mtrs length!
I use Westflex W103 on 144mhz and find this very good.
So do I use W103 or go for the Ecoflex10 ??

just changed the rg213 to W103
Very glad I did as I had water in the connector in the shack!!
also connectors quite badly corroded on the antenna so all cleaned up and sealed again.
band appears quieter and swr more stable at high power.
all in all glad i did it!
