Like hell they are. Crap BC sockets have too soft
metal and it isnt hard to end up with a bent bit
with the small bit that holds the pin.
Nothing like that with ES. The only real mechanical
downside with ES is that is does allow gorillas to
screw the bulb in much tighter than is necessary.
Just a quirk of that particular socket. I have
most of mine ES and don't get that effect at all.
The physical structure means that you can
apply a lot more pressure with an ES bulb
and socket than you can otherwise, that's all.
Yes I've seen this issue many moons ago on some movie lights. Turned out to
be a naff bit ofcrimping on the centere stud where a small short wire when
to the connection screw for the incoming wire.
Well it was branded Boots so I guess it was made for them not by them!
