I have too - and will do it if in a pinch - but nah either the crimping or soldering - both actually if done properly with the right materials imho work equally as well... the problem with crimps is there is one moisture point ingress unless the heat shrink cover where the spade starts....it doesn't take much and the crimp will outlast the wiring any day as it doesn't suck moisture...my last post was merely in jest....
