Here's the method I've used:

I had always learned that tinning ends that will be in compression fitting was a bad idea. The solder creeps over time and the connection becomes loose. If stray strands is a concern, they make copper sleeves or ferrules for that.

Do these mate with regular True 1?  If not, YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.

Sorry to yell at the messanger.

While at NAMM I did see these new connectors and talked to a rep.  They do mate to the original connectors.  They also fixed a design flaw that caused the clip to pop-off and a few other things.  I didn't even think to ask about if it will accept 12g SOOW.

I've heard that recently as well, but no issues thus far.  I guess old habits die hard :|

Keep checking for hot plugs! (To be fair, you only tinned the ends, but why temp fate?)
