I ordered some replacement cables for my Attack grip shifter from Icycles and when they arrived, they look pretty much the same as my spare Shimano's.

If you were expecting one brand to be so different as to be exclusive, it's not that way. There are different cable end types (the part that fits into the shifter), primarily between mountain and road types (some cables come with both, you cut off the one not applicable to your shifter), some differences in diameter, some use better quality steel, some have teflon coatings.

I pulled the cable replacement access plug from the grip shifter and forced some slack into the cable to get the end out. The lead cable end of the Sram is noticeably larger than the Shimano.
