Heavy Duty Paramount Cords
Why are Paramount Cords "better"?
Our PC tips are not soldered, because solder connections are brittle. Instead, Paramount wraps the conductors between metal and nylon bushings so that the PC can rotate 360 degrees without breaking. Since the most common cause of PC tip breakage is constant movement during insertion and removal of the tips in the camera, Paramount knurls the metal inside its the PC tips so that they will not spin when inserted and removed. All our cords are assembled by hand and inspected throughout the process, a rarity in manufacturing today!
Why doesn't Paramount manufacture a cord that will last forever?
We do have the technology at Paramount to make a cord with an even stronger PC. While we are able to manufacture a PC out of stainless steel or another hard metal, we don't because it would wear out your camera contact before the cord!
Do coiled cords last longer than straight cords?
Since both our coiled and straight cords are manufactured with exactly the same construction techniques, their life spans are a result of the way each photographer uses the cord. Cords should be kept dry and dirt-free, best accomplished by storing them in plastic bags. Regular conditioning and cleaning with our PC Tip Conditioner is a major help in maintaining cords. Coiled or Straight? It's a matter of personal preference!
