Actually, I'd actually prefer L-com over Pasternak, at least for connectors. In the last 5-10 years, the quality on Pasternak connectors and jumper cables I've used has been not so hot. Granted, this is for SMAs in various configurations, mostly.  BNC cables with 1/4" coax (like RG-58 style) from Pasternak have been ok.

Everything I've got from L-com has been decent quality, and they ship fast.

I haven't bought significant amounts of coax from them, though.
