    Fella's. I know some of you guys are real gurus here.

    Any major cons with the T&B SNS connectors...

    I'm currently use EX6XL with the PPC tooling ....
    In my *old stash* I still have plenty of T&B SNS QS connector - which I still have a cableprep tool somewhere as well.


    Care to shed some light. Is the EX6XL a far Superior connector.

    Just doing some cleanup and came across my stash of SNS connectors..

    No real harm in using them, approved cable is more of an issue then a connector not being up to code. As long as the connector is water tight and snug you will rarely have problem. However if you are doing installs, ask the QC lead in your office or you'll probably end up getting FSRs to go back and swap out connectors.

    So long as they're compression connectors they're fine. If they're outside they need weather boots, and drip loops so that the coax runs down and away from the fitting, guiding moisture to do the same.
