Has anyone dealt with ODU connectors on a regular basis? I'm dying to get off of the Lemo price increase runaway train. Until 2 years ago Lemo hadn't raised prices in almost 15 years(per the local sales rep). Now, January will mark the 6th increase in 2 years. I know precious metals have sky rocketed, gold especially and that has a huge influence on pricing but I haven't seen Fischer jacking up their prices like Lemo. I priced out the rt angle version of the Panavision XL power connector and it was $113!
So..........I'm looking at ODU as an alternative and I'm interested in any feedback on customer service and product performance.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to all.

I've been using them for years. I like their S-type connectors better than Lemos and use them on all my run/stop cables. Their customer service is fine. The only problem I have is they don't stock anything and every order has an 8-week lead time.
