Also I've figured out that when servo manufactures say they use 20AWG wire for their leads, they are stretching the truth. All servos that I have seen use 22AWG wire. In fact 20AWG wire is so large that it is difficult to get the wires to fit into the housings and it looks funny when you do.

A good explanation about connectors and wire sizes can be found here

So what makes the Berg/DuPont HT-95 and HT-102 better than the Hansen sold crimper?

I was thinking about getting the Hansen kit with the Deluxe crimper and wire strippers.

Thanks for the link with explanations.
