Hmmm when you put it that way... I fully understand..

Have you tried regular EC3's?

You might want to consider EC5's for 6s.

First I've seen those. Look like they may be the ticket.

I had to trim a few strands off my new Turnigy packs to get it to fit in the EC 3's. Maybe seeing as you have the crimpers now I will come over and put the 75A Power Poles on all my packs.

i run everything from 3S to 12S logo 600 on anderson power pole 30 amp veresion. work extremely well, never had any disconnects in the air or anything like that. Apparently, ec5's are a bit better electrically but don't tell my 4.5hp logo 600 that!

I use the 45Amp power pole with no issue on a 12S stretch T600 turning 690 blades. My budy using the 45 Amp as well on his 12S T700E.
I don't think you need the 75Amp power pole.

I used the Power Poles on my Logo 600 and I noticed that the connectors were warm after a flight so I switched to Deans. I recently switched to EC-5s and I love them! Connectors are cold after a flight and they feel soooo much more solid.........Ron

I guess I should have bought the EC5's when I first read this or the Powerpoles. I melted the EC3 connector from my ESC to the lipo. I'm wondering if I had a bit of a cold solder to the ESC or maybe the connectors themselves weren't tightly together. With the bigass wire in the new Turnigy lipos it is hard to get the connectors to seat well in the plastic casing. At least I find it to be that way.

Doing some flips and suddenly the motor just died. Not enough headspeed to auto nicely so it landed less than gracefully. Second flight with the new FBL setup and was just getting into it too... Biggest bummer is that one of my DS610's seems to be toasted now. Not the gears but the motor or something... Not happy about that... No damage to the head, boom, tail canopy or anything and the stupid servo is gunched...

connectors
Its been my experiece that the EC3's are too small for the wire. EC5's are a much better choice.
