I could be the poster child for bad connectors. I use the crimp on kind and they always split so I end up wrapping them in electrical tape. Half the time they end up falling off the end of the coax. Compression fittings would have saved me a a few disque switches. They also help prevent water damage in the coax. Not to mention they look cool. So if I know all about them why don't I use them? Mostly because I don't have the proper tools. Help me out Sadoun!
I would prefer it to get rid of the cheap crimp on and twist on connectors that I have.Nothing beats a good professional sealed connector for looks and use.Any other type is just asking for trouble and keeps you on the roof alot,usually in bad weather.
Compression F is my preferred connector for rapid, painfree installation. No wire braids to poke your fingers when you slide a crimp connector on, no hard force on the crimp tool to secure the connector (compression connector tool effortlessly completes the connection) and I can put a compression connector on a cable faster than a crimp connector.
Compression connectors are my preferred connector for two reasons. First is mainly because it's what the majority of experienced users of this forum recommend. That alone is good enough. Second is because they are so very very easy.
Third is because they make your system look like you know what you're doing even when you don't.
