Default Need Shift , Throttle Cable Recommendations

Hello ,
Looking for some experienced help with quality shift and throttle cables .
Iím replacing some in a twin engine 25í CC and would like some help with options as there are many to choose from .
Would like smooth feel and decent price . Itís not a $100,000 rebuild , just a fishing boat with a picky owner ! So with that in mind the cheepo cable wonít suffice and the $200 each cables are out. It has the cheep cables in it now and they are beyond stiff , once removed there is quite a bit of friction working the cable .
Thanks for the help

I like the Uflex Machzero series of cables myself. I think they are better built than the Teleflex Xtremes.

Don’t know what brand they are, but my local Kobelt controls dealer sells purple jacketed cables that are really silky!
