I just purchase basic Audioquest X2 14 ga. speaker cable to make a number of cables for 2 systems.
The 2 middle-of-the-road Audioquest BFA bananas are the CF-BFA (recommended on X2 box) and the SureGrip 300 banana plugs. The SureGrip 3oo is available everywhere while the CF-BFA is hard to find.

1. Is the SureGrip 300 a replacement for the CF-BFA banana plugs?
2. Is the CF-BFA higher quality or the same w/ a different sleeve design covering the wire insertion point?
3. Should I get gold or silver plated version?

Can I get some knowledgeable answers to these questions w/o any of the anti-Audioquest hate I so often read about, because I like the brand and have had great results with AQ.
Thanks you

I can’t answer the first two questions but in regards to silver vs gold plating, silver is more conductive but gold doesn’t tarnish or corrode so it’s better suited for connections like banana plugs.
