1. A conductive ground member for a cable connector, comprising:

  • a conductively coated component configured to form a conductive ground path between a first component and a second component;

    the conductively coated component including an inner core and an outer conductive coating configured to maintain an electrical ground path between the first component and the second component during operation of the connector; and

    wherein the outer conductive coating is configured to flex in one direction when a force is applied to the conductively coated component and wherein the outer conductive coating is configured to flex in another direction in response to at least a partial release of the force so as to maintain an electrically conductive ground path between the first component and the second component of the cable connector during operation of the connector.
