no play, so a more constant, solid connection. In thoery anyways. Also, no ware on your frames from the Clips. Probably less of a pain in the ass to get in and out of a clip cord bag. Acctually, im pretty certain of that, cause that shiz is a pain in the ass. I like traditional cords. The frames never ware too much, and you can easily and cheaply replace your rear post is you need to after a fairly long time. I do however, seem to destroy a cc about every 4 months somehow. I wish i knew why? I bet rca and similar connections ive seen are all really great, but i would miss the cc. I also wonder what effect the lack of play would have on your work. I doubt it would make a difference, but i bet it would feel wierd at first.
