Any experience with using any of the EBS flat patch cables as "S" a.k.a. "Offset" cables, having to twist the cable between two pedals?

I've been using them for about two years or so now. Love them, so far been tough as nails. I change things around constantly, and they often get twisted when connecting top jacks to side jacks. Not a single failure yet. I won't use anything else now.

I switched to the gold ones too, over typical style patch cables. No issues so far...8 months in... and I swap out pedals frequently.

Replaced all my cables with the regular EBS flats about 3 years ago and I've had 3 short out and die. Good cables but I wouldn't say the durability is anything special.

If I buy more I'll get the Gold or Performance version.

Did someone compare the Original vs Gold vs High performance patch models to see if there's any worthwile quality difference (noise, reliability..)?

I have both, and cannot tell the difference in sound. No idea about reliability, they are patch cables after all, so not sure how they would break.

I've had no issues with EBS cables failing. I don't move/unplug them often.

There might be some audio/noise improvements between the models, but nothing I can quantify.

IMHO the big difference is some small changes in the size of the connector. Golds are the smallest and that saves me some hassle on some pedals.
