Subject: Re: Patchcord kits - My Vote

i'm used the neutrik connectors myself and might be interested in part of a
bulk purchase. i also usually use L-2T2S and am in need of some more at
the moment so count me in for some of that. i usually buy through, pretty good prices but LMK what you guys come up with.
