JINKAI Crimping Tools

SC-3C  This is JINKAI's most deluxe handheld crimper, the original fine tool other companies have tried unsuccessfully to copy. Other tools may look the same but never match the smooth, precise operation of this JINKAI tool. Includes convenient side cutters, safety lock, and three crimping positions for use with JINKAI line 500lb. test and smaller.

SC-3  This beautifully designed tool includes a safety lock and handles contoured to fit comfortably in hand. Three crimping positions coordinate for use with JINKAI line 300 lb. test and smaller.

SC-2C  This tool is a good alternative for fishermen who use only the smaller sleeves, sizes H-K. Includes a tip cutter, textured grips, a safety clasp, and two crimping positions for use with JINKAI line 250 lb. test and smaller.

The ONLY pair of crimpers I will always use. I own three and wish I had three more. Take care of them and they will last you a lifetime.

I like my 2C it can crimp 50lb or less up to the bigger stuff like 200 or was it 250ib capacity. Way more than I need. Definitely recommend

Absolutely love this crimping tool, it is quality built from tip to toe. It is pure precision, you would probably not find a better crimper how ever hard you tried. I highly recommend this product especially to the person who is just starting crimping, because you will not be wasting your money buying inferior products. I also highly recommend this to the experienced crimper who has already wasted money on inferior products.

Used with Jinkai aluminum crimps. Tool functioned perfect with no problems. Like the lock system on the smaller tool better than the button slide. Keep locking it when I’m trying to use it but not a big deal. Would buy again but don’t see this one wearing out soon.
Cons
  • Don?t like the way it locks.

I'm not sure this is an actual jinkai brand crimper
June 14, 2021
Ordered this because it is advertised as a jinkai crimper. But once I got it and looked at the logo it reads 3 peaks stamped on the tool. So I'm not really sure what brand it actually is. It works of course but I think if paid more for it based on the brand jinkai

WHICH ONE IS ADJUSTABLE FOR DIFFERENT CRIMP SIZES. CAN YOU DEPEND ON USING ANY OF THE TOOLS RIGHT OUT OF THE PACKAGE WITHOUT ADJUSTMENT? SHOULD I HAVE A SEPARATE TOOL FOR EACH SIZE CRIMP TO BE SAFE..
1 Answer
The SC-3C is good for leaders between 80 and 400lb. It is ready to go right out of the package and works very well. JIN-0104
