A friend and I were discussing Apple earbuds. I said that the cables used to be coated with smooth plastic, but on the newer ones, the coating is closer to rubber, so the cables get tangled up easily.
I wanted to say, "I don't like the new, frictive cables." The only problem being that "frictive" isn't a word.
I've searched the OED and thesaurus.com, but haven't come up with a good word meaning "pertaining to friction" or "having the property of offering friction when rubbed." Does anyone have any ideas?
