Rudders and brakes (breaks)

I don't know if it is as safe as the nico press fitting, but I used a
swaged ball stop (w/ sleeve) and fork end on my rudder cables with a clevis
pin holding it to the rudder arm.  The cable doesn't bend, but my reasoning
was more because the rudders won't ever get "hung up."  I also did not use
the internal horn design so I could check it in preflight.  What do you
guys think.  Is the swage fitting safer or less safe?
