So what are your opinions regarding the Sewell Line of Banana Plugs
I suppose if I purchase one of their products I'd prefer either the: Pro Maestro, Silverback or Deadbolt type.
Being a banana plug novice what do you think would be the easiest plug to use to terminate the speaker wires with?
I went with the Deadbolt ones and the thing I didn't like is if you plug and unplug them a few times they get to the point of being loose fitting where the Deadbolt plug will almost fall out if there is a little pressure pulling on the speaker wire.
I haven't tried the other ones they sell but I thought of trying the locking ones next time or even the spades that you tighten your banana plug down on. The Deadbolts are nice as far as quick easy to connect and disconnect but like I said over time of hooking and unhooking them mine lost their spring in the fine little metal pieces that give them their "grip". Most people probably do not unhook their speakers as much as I do when I mess with stuff. If you hook them up and won't mess with them they will be fine and hard to beat the price from Amazon.
