Poor quality control?  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
These look like great connectors but the last two 6 packs that I bought were very poor. The inside diameter of the center conductor was too small for the stranded center conductor of the DX Engineering RG-8 I bought.
Before I realized what was wrong, I had two connectors push out the insulator and center pin while,trying to install them.
I finally had to trim 3 strands of the center of the RG-8 to get the connector on.
Hopefully this was a bad batch of connectors because Iíve always had good experiences with DXE.
I sent them an email so Iíll,see what they say.

Highest quality PL259  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I find that the quality of manufacturing to be of the highest standards the machine work is flawless. The PTFE dielectric is a plus as cheaper PL259ís with plastic dielectrics can melt if you are not careful during the soldering process. On the scale of one to ten this PL259 would rate a ten.
