Does anybody make stranded romex.

I've used stranded 12/2 MC cable and it pulls like a wet noodle.

We do a lot of residential remodel/adding plugs etc.. Fishing 12/2 in walls, around headers, etc. and it'd sure be nice to pull something that's not stiff.
It'd be easier to 'pack' a box once the joints are made up.

It would also be easier to over pack a box once the joints are made up too. Wonder if that is the reason it is not currently available in the states. I would love to be able to use it in retrofit work.
