Another DD e-match question
#1
Preparing for my first DD flight I bought a box of e-matches through the club.  The HPR guys were ordering a lot and I asked them to get a box for me.  They are  MJG Technologies: Electric Match.  This was a year ago and I am finally ready (almost) for a DD.  The av-bay is done, I understand the Stratologger and the Archtype cable cutter procedures. 
I have read on the forums the three most important steps in avionics are:
 1. Ground test
 2. Ground test
 3. Ground test.
I set everything up and the e-match head is too long for the cable cutter.  I cannot install the cap. 
I rigged an Estes starter, keep the remaining igniters for flights, and everything worked fine.
So, the question is, what e-matches will fit in an Archtype cable cutter?
Thanks to all.

I use the same cable cutter and use the MJG Technologies Inc. e matches without any difficulties.  I am using ffffg Goex Black Powder.  I tried ffffg Hogden 777 with marginal results.  While ground testing I have had 100% success and the 1 flight was also successful.  Here is the link to their product: https://electricmatch.com/products/see/8...-match-kit
I have no interest in this company other than being a satisfied customer.
