Blazing Underground Connectors

Have any of you used the Blazing connectors that have been available for a while? Gen 2 Kichler products come with a set of them in the box and I'm just curious about an overall opinion. Personally, I'm very skeptical as I was burned in a bad way by using the Quic Disc pierce point connectors in my infant years in this industry. I only used them for the first year or so but once I finally discovered the mistake I was making I had thousands of fixtures in the ground. Needless to say, I had to chase these things for years as they failed. Has anyone been using these contraptions for a significant amount of time?..... Enough time to provide an accurate account of their reliability?

I messed around with some at the shop, I wasn't all that impressed with them. They don't seem very secure and I really don't like the size of them so I'll keep using lighting shrink.

I'll echo Bernie. I tried a bag of Blazing several years ago and they did the job. However, after trying Lighting Shrink, I haven't looked elsewhere. Silicon heatshrink make a better connection.

They work but I prefer lightingshrink.com. There really is no comparison to them IMHO. We use 1000 or more a month so I am picky, never had an issue even when submerged in a fountain.
