I just bought a 3rd party Canon off-camera flash cord from a CSer to use with my Custom Bracket. However after a few landscape-to-portrait movement, the base of the cord (where it attaches to my 580EXII) broke into two!
Upon inspection, it is the plastic screw thread that broke, all 4 of them. I don't think is a faulty product from the seller, but the quality of the product itself.
Hence can you recommend me a good 3rd party brand? if not, is the original Canon cord durable?
