    I use this cord for triggering my Pocketwizard plus II tranceivers in my studio.I did have some problems for a while, because I needed to hold thePC end of the plug into my lens, to be able to trigger properly.After some checking and debugging og my process, I found that the center pin inside the PC-end of the plug, is simply "too straight", so it wasn't making proper contact inside the plug on my lenses.Taking a small screwdriver and pushing the pin a hair off-set, created super contact with my lenses (could feel that the plug really stuck to the lens). After that, I got 12 out of 12 shots with flash firing trough my pocketwizards.Generally, this cord is imo very well built; The plugs seems pretty rugged (was hard to adjust the center pin) and the outer shell also seems to be thicker than other cables I own, so they should stand up to some abuse.Very pleased with this lenght; I am able to velcro my Pocketwizard to my A12-back on my Hassy and have the cord circle my lens, creating minimal movements on the connections while shooting.

          I use this to connect my Pocket Wizards to my Canon speed light. I decided to go for the cheaper option and I was not disappointed! Works as promised.

                    I use this to connect my Elinchrom SPEED receiver to my Nikon SB-800 speedlight. It works like a charm. I wish the SPEED receiver came with this cord, but it's not too expensive, so it's not the worst extra expense you could run into.

                        I found the quality to be perfectly fine for what I use it for. I was afraid that getting a cheep cord would be a bad idea but in this case it works just fine!!

                            If you are looking for a cord to connect you large format lens or any camera with a pc flash sync plug to your PocketWizard, this is the correct one.
                            The cord is of normal quality and I expect years of use out of it in my commercial photo studio

                              I use this with my pocket wizard receiver when shooting with an off camera flash. The length of the cord gives me flexibility with placement of the flash and receiver. Also, the cord feels very durable which eliminates the fear of showing up to a shoot one day and the cord giving up on me. All in all, I will be buying more when I get more flashes and highly recommend this.

                                You need to have sync cords if you want to have your flash off of your camera. It's as simple as that. Sync cords help you create better light.

                                    I bought this cable to replace one that came with my alien bees receiver to fire an SB800. The cable went bad after only about a year (and not extensive use). This cable seems to actually fit better into the receiver and flash.

                                            I use this cable to attach my Skyport to my Nikon SB800 speedlight. Its just the right length, not overly long, It fits snuggly into the PC port of the flash.

                                            I use this cable to connect my sb-800 flashes to PW recivers. Works good. The only thing is that I have to buy new cables every few month. Not a big deal, but you have to have couple of extras in your bag.

                                              At this price you've got to have a couple for back-up in the event of loss or damage.
