What cable for Tektro RX4.1 brake lever?

I have a set of RX4.1 bar end brake levers that I want to install but they don't seem compatible with the Shimano DA cable ends that I was going to use. Does anyone know what the set up should be for these?

What you need is brake cable for a mtb brake lever. The easiest ones to get are the "universal" ones that have both road and mtb ends on them, but you can get just the mtb ones too. Here's examples.

I've used pricey cables, and inexpensive ones......they all work as well. JagWire are both inexpensive and good.

Yep, that round barrel end looks like what I need. Thanks.
