Default RE: pull-pull cable w/tiny bb crimped on end

Rather than guitar string I have used a metal lider set that you can buy in the fishing section at Wally world. I bought one with 15 or so yards of teflon coated metal wire that I believe was 50lb test. The kit also comes with the crimper tool and the pieces that you crimp down (not sure what they are called). I think it was 8 or 9 bucks. Then you just buy the threaded pushrod ends that are for soldering onto pushrods. I drill a fine hole in them and run the leader wire through it. So far I have made 3 pull pulls for a 90 sized plane out of this one kit and I still have plenty left for several more and all for around 10 dollars!
