Where to get a good deal on spool of mic cable?

I'm looking to make a number of xlr cables for stage and outdoor use. Probably four 40ft cables to start with, and then eight 20 footers.
Looking for flexible 2 conductor cable with braided shielding. It has to be easy to wrap at the end of the day.
Any of the big brands are fine with me. Or an off brand if I am convinced of it's quality and it's inexpensive. Audiopile's cable has been recommended to me and seems affordable.
I am open to paying more for twisted pair or better shielding as long as it's easy to work with.
It's really hard to compare prices from different sites on wire spools.
If anyone here watches prices on this sort of thing, and has a tip on a current good deal for a 100+ meter spool, please share.

Thanks

AMAZON works best for audio cable at reasonable prices.
