Delta Aztec Powerline Shifter Cable

Is anyone familiar with the Delta Aztec Powerline Cable? I assume that the special flexible outer housing is used where outer housing would be used. The product also comes with a translucent plastic housing that seemingly goes over the Teflon cable. The two pieces, the Teflon cable and the translucent plastic housing are apparently inserted into the special flexible outer housing. Is one to use this translucent inner housing only when using the flexible housing or should this translucent plastic housing be used from the shifter to derailleur even when the flexible outer housing is not used?

Thanks.

The inner housing is a full length deal. Much like Gore Ride On cables or Dry Cables

I recently installed some.

The cable is inserted into the inner housing the entire length of the cable through the links.
The outer housing just holds the links until the cable is inserted.

Have you already purchased these?
I didn't see any benefit over a normal cable. Just looks different.
Also a pain when the links start falling out during installation.

Thanks MtbVA. Yes I already purchased them. As you probably know, they were not cheap! I'm always on a quest to improve shifting performance, especially with the front derailleur. I am yet to be successful. I seem to just keep throwing money after more money at an apparently unsolvable problem.
