Not recommended due to lack of stiffness and cables stretching. Rolled steel brace members should be preferred, e.g., hollow sections. If you'd like to pretension braces, this can be achieved by using tubes and a threaded sleeve at one end. Otherwise, use front plates and shims (i.e., create a flange) at one end to achieve a perfect fit.I intend to cable brace.
