Professionally crimped wires are superior since the flexibility allows you to manipulate the wire after the closure. However, I have never been able to duplicate the professional product. Usually there is a crimp over the insulation as well as a 'bow tie' crimp on the wire which us amateurs cannot duplicate with our cheapo equipment. So, I would rather solder, protect and forget about separation. This has been a very good exchange. Thanks all again.
