I've been experimenting with cable designs a lot lately. I've been most successful using solid-core silver plated copper in a braid. I do a normal three-way braid but with 2 24 AWG runs for each leg of the braid (look up Kimber's KCTG to see how it looks). I've done this with teflon coated silver plated copper, unplated silver, and unplated copper. For the non-plate builds, I used bare wire and ran it through oversized teflon tubing, sealing the tubing to the wire with F4 silicon tape. I found that I prefered the cables with 2 wires for the conductor and 4 for the return. I have an extra run I made that I'm not using if you want to try out the design yourself.
