RE: Cardas Bare Copper Spade

The downside of the GRS spade is the size factor; I've experienced enough frustration about a misfit between 1/4" vs. 5/16" binding posts and spades that aren't universal fit. The CMC 6005 fits both sizes, and provides options for both a heavy-duty crimp termination and strain-relief. Otherwise, I'll only invest in modular connector designs like the WBT spade along with a crimped ferrule sleeve, so any size can be swapped-out as I've done before without essentially re-terminating the cable. It was a great relief after upgrading a power amplifier with a newer one that features a larger 5/16" binding post. A real relief to not experience unfortunate audiophile grief at that time.
