I'm going to make some of these tonight. Will report back on how it works out.

Tried it last night and it's definitely doable, both right angle or straight stubbies, but if you need to use the mini xlr chassis as a ground it's very difficult. I did not use any of the internal components expect the piece with the actual pins. Without the internal metal piece, its tough.

Am I missing something here? Haven't we(me, Ted, GreatGumbino, many others) been doing this for years?

With Mini-XLR connectors? I don't see anything on your retail thread specific to stubby mini-xlr connectors and per your own post in this thread (see above) it sounded as though you deemed their feasibility to be questionable when you tried it last. Let us know if this is not the case!

Oh its doable and i have done many, long term, eh, even those ones in that pic i can see the "pitfalls" with them, now i havent modded the newer neutrik mini xlrs, those could possible be better suited for mods, i have used them not modded and they seem a lot sturdier

Awesome... I didn't even know that Neutrik was making these now and I see they're 1/5 the price of the Switchcraft version. Time to place an order!
