I like die drawn slicked cables.. the stainless is better,
but I try to solder the cable end where I cut it,
and Stainless is harder to solder..
Zn coated are soldered more easily.. then greased..
You show a low profile type caliper, those are commonly better when link wire is shorter.
the shimano one has a separate short cable , the long wire continues down thru a tube to the fixing bolt.
for the other side..
You buy those in various lengths.
