I'm hoping for some help here. I have a Metz 60 CT4 with the standard 1m connecting cable (from flash to battery) and want to get the 3m version. However, on searching it looks like its not available anymore, and I can't find any secondhand either.
So, my options are

1. Does anyone here have a 3m cable they no longer need?

2. Does anyone know how many wires are within the cable? If there aren't many, and they are colour co-ordinated I was thinking maybe I could cut the cable and insert a new length in, thereby giving me the extra length I am looking for.

The reason I want a longer cable is so that I can use the flash on a tripod, and have the battery sitting on the floor. At the moment the cable is too short for this as I can't get the flash high enough for my needs.

Nevermind. I worked it out for myself. There is only three wires contained in the cable, so I bought some 3 core cable and some connectors, cut the cable and inserted the new cable and now have the length cable that I wanted.
