I've been driving myself mad researching and planning my cables. I am planning on making 25-30 cables (mostly RCA/RCA...but a couple F connectors also) I had planned on the Canare crimp stuff but then came across the Permaseal and F-Conn compression stuff. Crimp Canare - est $300 for tools and materials Pros - well made, pretty, widely accepted as good stuff Cons - price of tools, applicacation specific tool requirement (RG6 vs RG59 and brand specific - i.e. one crimp tool if I'm useing Canare 5CFB a different if I use Belden 1694a etc.) Compression Permaseal - est $130 for tools and materials (F-Conn is like $220 for tools and materials) Pros - much less expensive, tools are cheaper and more versatile (can be used on just about any RG59, RG6) Cons - no "cool" factor???? durability? connection? Any thoughts on these two technologies would be appreciated.
