    PROS: The product works really well; Super fast
    CONS: None specified
    Locally I could only find f-types for RG-6 when repairing the RG-59 (thinner inner shield, and, yeah I know, cheap) cables I have. Not only did Show Me have the RG-59 connectors but moved me to a different and cheaper connector when the one I ordered was out of stock. Saved me a few bucks and shipped 'em right away! Thanks!
  • EXACTLY what I wanted!

    Excellent! I have used many F-end connectors and this one is best. Has a longer stem and it inserts easily. Much improved picture when I replaced the old one.
