Customer has a rise-and-fall pendant - the sort with 2 pulleys and a counterweight metal ball - and because of the length of the drop (about 2.5-3m) the person who installed it had to replace the cable that came with the fitting with their own, which has a sort of woven sheath. It looks nice, but doesn't flex/go round the pulleys very nicely, so the lamp is fine to pull down, but doesn't go up very nicely. It needs 3-core (metal lampholder and shade with earth connection). I've got some 0.75mm H05RN-F, but I'm not sure it'll be any better than what's there at the moment.

Just wondered if there was a particular type of cable (very flexible) for this sort of thing?

Cheers! :)
 
TL;DR
Very flexible cable for pulley light?
Robotics cables have extra flexibility but it depends how often it is pulled up and down. H07RNF is probably the most flexible for your off the shelf stuff.
