I use Romex NM a good bit- the local supplyhouse stocks one brand of Romex that's hard to strip. Home Depot and Lowe's stock another brand of Romex that's really easy to strip and pull through the studs.

Who makes the best Romex NM building wire on the market??

Whatever brand is cheapest is best, so far it's Simpull since the Orange store has the lowest prices for 14 and 12 NM
There's one downside to the simpull. The silicone makes it so slick that, at times I've pulled it halfway acccross a ceiling, get down to move the ladder, and the whole run slips right back out falls on the floor.

I doubt the poster is from Southwire...they hold the trademark for Romex and sent a strongly worded letter to MH about not permitting the word "romex" to appear on his forum unless it had the "®" next to it.

For what it's worth, the OP appears to be a national account manager for Southwire. I wish they'd just buy a freaking banner ad than be sneaky, but I guess this suits them. It has to work better than the approach Beverly took around the net. That went over like a lead balloon.

People are fugging stupid.

I didn't care what brand I used but now I hate Southwire/Romex for being stupid.

Good job Dude.

Funny. Didn't Southwire send Nathan a threatening email about using the Romex name sans the attendant ®? Strange how it got 'missed' by the OP.

I shop on price. I don't much care who's name is on the box. I seem to get Colonial a lot, but for no particular reason.
