P-Line Deluxe Hand Crimper
I purchased 30lb coated leader, aluminum sleeves and attempted to crimp the sleeves around a hoop which would have served to fasten the hook.
10 for 10 the leader came loose and we were using less than 1 pound of pressure to pull.
We took our our fishing pliers which can crimp and we were able to keep the loops from coming apart. Not happy with these crimps.

I decided to try my hand at making my own rigs. This crimper tool was the perfect choice. I've been able to make double drop rigs and carolina rigs using this device, sleeves, swivels and some nice flouro. I highly recommend this sturdy tool!

Lock rivit issue
I agree with the other reviewer. The sixth sleeve I crimped, the rivit fell apart. Had to use epoxy to repair. Should not have to fix a new product. Use on 135 lb steel and 200 lb mono. good hand grips to be able to get proper crimps.

bought this a couple of months ago to make some leaders for some shark fishing ive tried some smaller crimpers and they hurt my hands after a couple of crimps but these are awsome no cramps and it takes little effort to use these.
