From the grooves, looks like a Neutriks.

Qusp, that's sheite about the VBs. Especially as you say, considering the price.....

I've chewed through half a dozen Viablue minis and no problems yet...I'd talk to whoever sold it to you and get a replacement, that's not normal. They're all drum tight so far.

X2 for the 1/4" plug thread.

Why is it so?



I guess it has to do with looks. Fashion before functionality.

^^ no its because they are so scarce on the ground. so jfar the best I have used are still switchcraft although I would love a more high end solution. all the same, durability is the most important thing with panel jacks IMO

IMO Switchcrafts are plenty high-end. You could go crazy and cryo treat them, but I don't see the point of it since they're already super strong.
If there was something significantly better, ALO or any of the commercial cable builders would've already picked it up I think.
