So which way to go? I think soldiering is the way to go and the above posts convinced me to learn.
The big three have expensive machine driven crimpers that do a much better job than a pair of hand crimpers ever could.

FWIW, I have never seen a twisted, soldered shrink wrap connection fail in over 40 years of working on cars both for a living and a hobby.

A solder joint that is brittle is a cold solder joint from the get go. If the solder flows right it is not going to go brittle.
