Try these...linked below
Tellurium Copper with a conductivity of 93% IACS, much better than brass, beryllium copper, etc.
I also like the mass of the barrel, and the insert likely acts to dampen vibration.
Those are awesome! And priced right too. I've never seen those before, so many thanks for the link. The model you linked to will only accept 12 gauge wire (and I have two 12 gauge wires to shove in there), but the ones below will work nicely. Love the design on these all the way to the Torx setscrews.
I bought a few dowels yesterday to try out Duster's idea on the AQ plugs, but haven't had a chance to install them yet. I may order a set of the Furez anyway just because they're so well thought out. Thanks again for the link.
BTW, I suggest wrapping the wooden dowel insert with a layer of PTFE plumber's tape before you insert it into the tip of the BFA connector.
The Teflon tape wrap may provide a level of vibration control, while also allowing a snugger-fit based on how many layers are wrapped around the dowel.
I stumbled across them because I was looking for spades that would accept a huge wire size for a DIY cable I was trying out, and they sell them.
I ended up buying spades and a bunch of the bananas because they were so inexpensive.
I still like my Furutech spades best, and I mostly use the Furez bananas for my HT set-up, but I do have the bananas you are looking at. They fit my amp's WBT posts very snug. I suspect you will be satisfied. My only (minor) issue is the T6 torx size they use is quite small and susceptible to stripping - I purchased a few extra of the small screws. If you are careful and tighten incrementally it should be fine. They will even sell you a torx driver (screwdriver type) for just over $3 that fits their torx stuff.
