I used the SXL. I think (big I think) the GXL is the same, but from a different brand. Could be real wrong there though. The TXL just tinned version of the first two?

From the last time I looked the "XL" was a designation mostly based on the insulting jack construction. It meant that it was crosslooped poly etc, etc, It was almost like there was a teflon coating on the wire jacket, very slippery stuff. Cheap heat shrink tubs would have a hard time sticking to it. All of them had fine strand crossed over wire in them (noise reduction).

You dont need the tinned wire if you are not in a marine application, or if ou are sealing the connections with solder and heat shrink.
