The only problems I have experienced with BNCs has been when they are incorrectly fitted - which is often the case. But I have seen this problem on SMAs, Ns and BNCs.
There are some crappy connectors around. I have a piece of leaky feeder made by Gore. It was for use on aircraft and cost a small fortune. Gore stuck some really poor connectors on them.
I am not too impressed with Gore stuff, although Pasternack are the worst of the expensive manufacturers.
