    Quoted from Patofnaud:

    Ed has them and if very knowledgeable in Pinball.

    I believe Ed only carries crimp-style connectors, not IDC.

    Quoted from viperrwk:

    As Ed says:

    "IDC's are used to cut down on labor time and are not known for reliability. Discrete crimps are far more reliable but require more labor time."

    Probably the reason he doesn't stock 'em.

    That's not a theory shared by one of the greatest tech minds in pinball (Martin Reynolds of Pinbits):

    That said, Ed is also a pin genius...and a heck of a nice person (just like Martin--and Pam).

    Perhaps in the end, it just boils down to personal preference--and if a completely stock appearance is important to you or not.
