Nice Tool
Wow, what a quality tool! I used a cheeper tool and thought 'there's got to be something better'. There is, this leader tool is impressive.

I liked this until it broke and pieces went flying
I had made a couple hundred crimps with the tool -- double-barrel copper in sizes .8mm through 1.6 mm. Today one of the jaws snapped off as I was doing a simple 1.3 mm crimp of a multi strand wire cable. One of the jaws, the crimp and the cable went flying. I still haven't found the jaw that broke off. I'm sure I'll step on it some day. Tools like this should not break -- or explode like this one did -- at the relatively modest pressures I apply in my lure and leader-making fishing prep. I can't recommend this tool.
ProsIt's pretty and the handle is more comfortable than some other crimpers I own.
ConsMine exploded. Fortunately the parts flew away from me instead of into my eye. I was wearing eye protection, but I'm glad it wasn't tested. I don't think the jaws are made of strong enough iron. Looks more like pot iron that forged steel. That's a problem.z

Great quality
For someone that is inexperienced in making their own rigs this tool is great. Very sturdy and easy to use, the kind of quality you can expect from any Penn products
ConsMaybe a little small for large crimps for large rigs. Eat your wheaties lol

This past week I joined Patrick Sebile and a few friends to fish with Captain Tim Simos in the swirling rips of the Fort Pierce, Florida Power Plant to try for tarpon up top. Anyone who's fished for tarpon understands it's a battle... Read More
