P-Line Heavy-Duty Crimper
They work OK, but they are prone to rust.
The rust appears in the worst possible spot, too - right in the crimping notches. Does a good job. but remember to wash the salt off when you're done.

Just look at the picture on line. The third crimping stage is the same size or smaller than the 2nd stage. I contacted P-Line and they agree. They offered to give me 2 pairs of their low rate Crimpers in replacement. Sorry-no go. All crimping stages are mis-labeled as far as crimping size. How does a bad product quality get thru the supplier as well as world wide suppliers with no notice? I will return this product and do not expect to pay shipping charges.

Does not evenly crimp
The Jaws of this crimper are angled so your left with a crimp that looks like a triangle, the bottom of the crimp is wide and the top is narrow. This leaves the crimp pressure on the line unevenly distributed. The second fault on this product is that it leaves aluminum crimps with a jagged edge, this edge will cut you if a fish runs while its in your hand. Other than that, the product is very well machined and for that I give it two stars. I will be returning this product today.
