i'm not saying don't use them, i just want you to be aware that this is an issue. on soldered patchbays you can have problems as well. bad patch points, cold solder points etc. these things happen over time and also depends how much you abuse the patchbay. it's very unnerving to me to see someone pull a patchchord by the cable instead on the connector...little things like this will ruin a patchbay.
