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 needed to bypass the poor connection from my Canon 5d3 to the Profoto Air Remote as the hotshoe connection wasn't working on the remote, really lame as the remote costs $+.For what I needed, I should've bought the 6' length.

        Comments about Impact Sync Cord Male Mini (3.5mm) to Male PC (1'):

        I am using these sync cords to connect some cheap radio triggers to my Alien Bees. I used a small strip of Velcro on top of the AB units and a small strip on the side of the triggers. The supplied AB cords are 15' long and I wanted something shorter as I use them on location with the triggers more than anything else. Tested before first gig and worked perfect, used at several shoots now and no issues.

        More affordable than the pocket wizard version. A good replacement for a lost cord. Gets the job done.

                        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
