Recommendation: meh 4.4 / 5 from 10 reviews

This product is a must have for anyone planning on building Great Ball Contraption Modules. This product connects to the old 9V train controller which is what people use to power GBC's because of their reliability. This Extension Wire connects to the controller with ease and there is hardly any wiggle from it. Overall I recommend this product to any who is wanting to get into Great Ball Contraptions.
