Hello - you can use these too.
The photo shows the front "nosecone" unscrewed forward so the banana portion looks short - it actually back-up against the center disc to capture the spade, thus exposing more of the banana. This is a very popular, quality adapter.
I've tried literally dozens of various adaptor/connectors and because I regularly pull out the bananas from my main speakers when I re-route the sound to my kitchen speakers, I've found most standard banana adaptors 'loosen up' over time and become very loose in their receptacles.
These ones I have found to not only maintain their incredibly tight connection, but also to be the ones able to be tightened onto the spade the hardest.
Halcro, You are absolutely right. These bananas offer the best connection and they do the least to harm the sound. Audioquest has been offering this type of banana for almost 20 years. The less metal the better as far as I'm concerned.
But I think he wants to go the other direction from a banana to a spade
