They make a crimper specifically for it, which cuts of the ends. I
haven't done a few thousand ends with it but it does make it slightly
easier to maintain the twist further into the the plug because you can
pull it until snug.
I crimp infrequently enough that I occasionally don't get a spec cable
when using conventional connectors.
