Hi!

The most popular brand is MDPC-X (Website)

You also have Lutro0 Customs (Website)

And you have Darkside (Website)


I've used MDPC a few times. Very very high quality sleeve. The company is located in Germany but shipping fees are super nice and they ship fast.

I just finished a sleeving job with Darkside sleeve and they are nice too. Not the same quality as MDPC but very close. The biggest advantage with Darkside is that it's Canadian based since it's distributed by Dazmode in Ontario.

i never used Lutro0's sleeving but I heard good things about it. The company is based in the USA. I usually use his hardware (wire, crimps, tools) and they are very top notch so I can figure that he won't be selling crap when we talk "sleeve"


Hope it helps

Lutro0... They ship with USPS and I did not have to pay any customs on my order.
They also do not label anything, so you'll receive a ziplock bag of crimps and connectors, rolls of sleeving, wire, heatshrink, and are left on your own to figure out what is what.

I bought their sleeving but haven't been able to finish my project due to a bunch of issues with ordering from them. The looks and feel of the sleeve is fantastic, but I actually haven't even put it over any wires yet.

They flubbed my $270 order. They originally only shipped me half of the items I ordered. I asked when will I get the remaining items, they apologized and said they shipped me the rest of the items. When I asked for tracking they said it was "lost" and they sent me another one which I did receive. I think they actually forgot to ship it and then only did after I asked for an update.

My modded LC crimper die for 16AWG is messed up and they said they shipped me a replacement + extra crimps at the end of November. Still no replacement die or reply to my follow up email :(

Thinking of falling into the abyss of cable sleeving starting with my next build. Regarding crimping pliers, between the Engineer tool Dazmode carries and MDPC-X's own, which do you guys prefer?

MDPC-X crimpers are awesome. I've crimped probably 2000 crimps with mine and it is still going strong.
