Thanks
Richard

I have also used both, deans wire when rewiring the ESC and wet noodle for my batteries. I found both as are good as each other.

Don't think we can feel the difference in the 2 wires.

Maybe the resistance could be like 0.000001 or something??

While,any wire bought from any RC shops could be used without any problems.

The only thing you want on a wire is silicon jacket & 12 AWG(gage), the rest is history.

I doubt it's the same wire. I am a journey man electrician and I have never seen anything in the field to be the same as what we use for rc. Welding cables are as close as I have seen, but welding leads are about size #3 wire and aren't insulated with Silicon insulation. It's the number of strands to cross mils that makes the difference. I haved used GS wire with good results too. I do like the novak wire the best.
