The Carlon folks had a pretty aggressive sales force in the Tampa area. They were really pushing smurf so they could get some nice pictures of installed ENT. The last catalog I saw had a Tampa installation featured.
I used a lot of smurf in my renovations at my house. It is actually pretty easy to work with. I am also torture testing some on my boat.
So far I have not come up with a good reason why they would not try to list it for wet/UV locations if you had a tighter connector or if it was used without a splice. (which reminds me of a question about MC I will ask over at your house)
I have some that is over 15 years old, exposed to salt water and Florida sun. 3/4" smurf is a great sleeve for a steering cable. ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
The last time I pulled it back the cable looked like it did, right out of the box.
