If you only have to press 1 pin at the same time, this usually goes pretty well. So I doubt a bit but would rather spend a bit more to use the original FT pins. If I still have to make a separate order I will definitely use these FT pins.
the nominal diameter of the ft pins is also 2.6mm and the connectors indicated by sven and me have been used for ft since ever. They were originally used for model railroads first. ft did not make their own pins, they just made the rectangular housing instead of the cylindrical.
For optical reasons, I also never used the cylindrical connectors, but I own many of them which I got with used ft parts...
