I have soldered more jacks than I can remember and have found the cheap quality cables today comes with fragile jacks.I must say its a big returning business for music shops and cable makers.
Dear players,you would spend RM300 to RM30000 to buy a guitar,bass,etc.but when it comes to cable "I just need something cheap and functional,this RM25 one will do"
Well what can I say some people are cheap and like to bother the busy guitar tech for some soldering help.But I have tell you your cheap jack may not survive a 2nd or 3rd visit to the soldering iron.
The solution?Use Switchcraft jack.Put/Install/Solder it to your cable,this jack is built tough and will survive many visit to the soldering iron.Stop buying,breaking and throwing away a lot of cheap guitar cables unless you want the price of copper to go up.
