Source for coax cable for DIY antenna

After breaking two antennas in 2 days, I'm ready to make my own.

I found the welding wire to use for the cloverleaves at HD. But I'm wondering what you guys use for the coax cable and SMA connector.

From what I've seen, you're not buying bulk cable and then attaching an SMA (is that hard to do?). It looks more like you're buying cable with an SMA already installed.

Are these just the simple pigtails that people use to connect a Vtx to a frame-mounted antenna? I have one but it's pretty flexible. Probably to flexible.

EDITED: Never mind. I found a video showing how to easily solder SMA connections to RG402. I'll buy bulk wire and a bag of connectors.
