Hey if the Weatherpacks are good enough for government work (GM) then I guess it's good enough for me. Thanks Mike, I might have to snag a couple of those from you and borrow your crimping tool sometime. Might have to pay you back in the form of some beers at D's Six Pack & Dogs.
Jimmy, the consensus on the Internet seems to be that Deutschs are superior. But I couldn't find detailed info on why/how. Can you fill me in?
Regarding the strain relief, it doesn't really look like either of them have any sort of real strain relief. Am I missing something? I guess the Weatherpacks might relieve the strain off the terminals but the rest of the wire can still kink as it leaves the connector body.
