I just discovered the EBS flat ends stuff. I need to redo my board, what else should I be looking at?

For non solder, the new planet waves with the geo tip connectors are good. The connectors are much smaller (still bigger than the EBS) and the connection to the pedals is very solid. I used about 5 on my new board, and some of the soldered american stage 6 inch as well. If you take time to build them properly, and make sure that the connections are solid they work great. I generally prefer soldered cables, but these are quite good.

For soldered I have bunch of the 6 and 12 inch Fulltones that I have used for years and they are very solid. Never had a failure. The connectors are bulky but otherwise excellent.

Yeah, the Planet Waves solderless, though 1 generation older, are failing on me and that's specifically what I'm looking to get away from. I don't *mind* doing my own - hell, I did a 'how to DIY' thread here a few years ago, and have a bunch on my board - but I'm lazy and busy and out of pancake ends, what a combination, and just looking for plug and play. Probably order the EBS, they look neat and space saving, the guys over at Talkbass have had a few but very few failures.

Those EBS cable look really cool. Reasonable prices too. Is there any reason they wouldn't work for guitar?

no reason, same cables exactly.

bassstringsonline.com is where I will probably get mine, what other sources did you see?

FYI, bassstringsonline are getting an order of the EBS flat patch cables today, and shipping out tomorrow. Jason is the proprieter, he called me and we had a nice talk. I ordered a couple other things plus 12 cables of various lengths, he ships USPS and charged me $15.50 US

Yes..your memory is good. You bought the bulk cable and all the plugs from some fellow in Windsor (or Sarnia?) at a great price ...and I made the cables up for you in custom lengths.

I use the Disaster Area solderless and I can't recommend them enough. Simple to put together and work every time.

Been using George L 155s for over a decade now -- I can minimize the pedal-to-pedal patch length and am happy with the result (including no gig failures.)

There's a couple pics of my board done up with the EBS in the pedal board sticky.

They are very compact, I gained small but significant space between pedals. Connection is solid, firm satisfying click going in and stiff to remove. The cable is VERY soft and flexible, more so than any cable I've ever used. It actually worries me a bit, as to how durable they will be.....but it makes for easy going around corners and crevices.

I roll my own cables, but for pedalboard patches I don't bother. I find the solderless DIY kits too unreliable (and not cheap; I don't understand the appeal at all); and pancakes make me angry if I have to work on them (so I just make sure all the pedals I build/buy have the I/O at the top so that's not a space issue). For such short cables, high end wire is also moot (seriously, save your money). I use these whatever the best deal I can find is on basic cheapo moldies; BLMS is usually up there ( get some buds together, order a few of those 6 packs and some 9V power supplies/daisy chains, and the shipping is worth it), otherwise amazon.
