The unique patented design of the EX Series body provides a universal compression fit on all Series 6 drop cable types (standard, tri and quad). The resulting ease of installation and reliability make the EX Series the most resistant to craft error, moisture ingress and improper cable/connector matching of any connector on the market.

On the other hand, I had a bear of a time finding a tool that could compress them. With my older PCT tool, the connector was too long. With my newer Ideal tool, the connector was too short.
In the end, I invested in a new Klein compression tool that was adjustable, and worked. So, before you invest in 50 of these, you'll want to make sure you're using the right compression tool.
These have worked every time with a nice tight seal. I purchased these along with the compression tool (construction is solid) and coax strip tool:
* BAMF Complete Adjustable Universal Compression Tool Coax RG6 RG59 RG11 F81 BNC RCA
* AODE® Universal Cutter Stripper for Flat or Round UTP Cat5 Cat6 Cable Coax Cable Stripping Tool 200359
All three of these I'd purchase again.
I calculated it would be cheaper to get the tools and bulk wire rather than buy pre-made cables for my DIY TV antenna project.
I used these guys with the Etekcity Coax Compression tool here on amazon also, they work great.
Only 'Wasted' two getting the hang of it, learned a new skill and got the job done on a budget!
Here's one of my cables plugged into a wall.
Watch my youtube video on how to turn one of these into a flaring tool that makes it real easy to put these on your cable.
I have put on hundreds of connectors on Dual Shield RG6 with no problems. But then I ran into some Quad Shield that was very difficult. I watched every Youtube video I could find and nothing was really helping.
I was a the point of tears! I had my 2 engineer sons helping and it was a hard job putting the ends on Quad cable. Yes, I was folding the outer braid back, and removing the outer foil layer, and then folding the inner braid back and I was still having trouble with some. I purchased more strippers from Amazon. I bought two flaring tools from Amazon that did not help at all.
But prayer and lots of practice paid off. I made one of these connectors into a flaring tool. I also shared some tips that make all the difference in success or frustration.
Video name: "Make a RG6 Coaxial Flaring Tool for Quad or Dual Shield. EASY!" I made several videos showing a process that really took the frustration out of the job. Hope this helps others.
1) Cheap (for a 50pk)
2) Solid Construction ~ They look great!
3) Easy to use with a good compression tool
4) Work great with this tool: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CCRZWO?redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_4
1) Not a name brand?
If that can even be a con! HA! Used for small commercial & residential applications. Used a total of 8-10 ... and after practicing with the first one ~ I was good to go! Highly Recommend
These work very well, if you use the right tools. Or even right-enough tools. I'm using a fairly cheap compression tool and stripper, and they're working fine with these. They give a very good, solid connection every time. And they're cheap enough that you won't mind cutting one off and replacing it if you need.
The only downside is that the nut doesn't "spin" on the connector. There is a bit of friction on the assembled connector. That, and the odd shape of the nut surfaces, makes it just a bit hard to twist onto the fitting with your fingers. But it does go on with the fingers.

But I blame the cable.
