Nice find +T 8)

For me personally, I like the smaller one because I won't use it much and it'll take up less space in my gear bag the smaller it is! Plus, my Straight XLR's for SBD patches are 15' long, so I don't really need the extra 5'! That said, both look like great options and I definitely need to grab that shorter Hosa Y Cable from above that's only $12! Thanks again for the links guys!

Next up, I need some Straight XLR->Straight RCA adapters for the SBD ends of my XLR's, so that I can easily patch a SBD that only has RCA outs! That should cover me pretty good on SBD patches! RCA & XLR OUTs for the SBD ends, and XLR & 1/8" INs for the recorder end! Do most SBD's have a MALE XLR OUTPUT ??? Female XLR end of my cables for the SBD end, and Male XLR connectors for my recorder end, correct? I RARELY get a SBD patch, but I'd still like to be prepared for almost any situation I'd have patching the SBD for my 70D's, and just wanted to make sure that most SBD's do have a MALE XLR output, and NOT a Female XLR out!

Bean soundboard outputs in MOST cases will be XLR male, RCA female, or 1/4" female. If I know SBD is an option but don't know the SBD details, I always carry these two of these two adapters and then I know I am covered for 99% of what is in the wild.

^ in addition to the connectors mentioned by nolamule, I carry a pair of each of these which pretty much covers all bases:

Thanks again for yinz guys help! I looked up a Midas console and checked out pics of the back of it to find that most SBD's are XLR Male, 1/4" & RCA Female :)

 I RARELY get a SBD patch, but I'd still like to be prepared for almost any situation I'd have patching the SBD for my 70D's, and just wanted to make sure that most SBD's do have a MALE XLR output, and NOT a Female XLR out!

I was confused about the male/female SBD output until I handed the male ends of my cables to Dickey Betts' sound guy. He said "wrong end my man". He saw the puzzled look on my face and told me to "ALWAYS look at the sound board as a microphone. All Microphones have a male xlr at the bottom, right?" "It's giving you the sound source."  Lesson learned, but I always have the XLR turnarounds, and various xlr converters in my big bag.

No worries! I would've done the same thing as you until I found out recently! That's how rarely I get a SBD patch! But now that I have 15' XLR's and those 1/4" & RCA Adapters, I should be able to easily patch just about any SBD :)

Naks and TEACs need a female XLR, not male.  That aside, yes, you can certainly get a Y cable or adapter that will go from XLR females to a single 1/8" (adapter would most likely be from 1/4" male x2 > 1/4" female x2 > 1/8" stereo. When I plug my Naks into a small recorder, I just use the original Nak cables and a Y adapter or a set of customs that do the same thing.

I use the above mentioned XLR cables into a Hosa CYX401F y-cable to 3.5mm TRS adapter with my Teacs.  It works fine, I don't really like using connected mics anymore so I like that setup even though it is bulkier and more stuff in the bag.

Given the choice, I would avoid Hosa.  I use the Y-adapters from them as well, and have to replace them far too often, to the point that I carry a new one with me so I'm ready when it fails. Specifically, I'm referring to the mono 1/4" (x2) >> stereo 1/8"...in other words, the one you'd use with the Nak cables.  If you need to use them, do your best to keep them straight.
