Hey guys, 

 

I want to make my own 12 gauge heavy duty 100ft, 50ft, and 25 ft stingers for my kit. I'm planning on buying 1000 feet of cable and male and female hubbles separately and making my own stingers from scratch. 

 

Does anyone know where I can find a resource for these materials online?

Not certain that you'll find a mail order or internet based supplier that's cheaper once you factor in the shipping.  Rubber cord isn't light and an electrical supply will be buying it by the truckload direct from the supplier.  I'd seek out my local wholesale electrical supply.  Be certain to go in with a business card.
