Rated 3 out of 5 by xXStevenXx I suppose they're OK
I have never used other brands versions of these, so I have no idea if the Park ones are worth the monumental price tag, but I can't see how they would be.
I found these pliers a pain to use when trying to pull and hold the tension in the rear mech cable. I actually found it to be easier to just push the mech up and just hold the cable in place with one hand and tighten the bolt with the other.
And my front mechs cables are generally slack when adjusted for indexing anyway.
I guess it might be useful for other cables I've not used it on yet, but I certainly wasn't wowed by how simple my life had suddenly become as other reviews have seemed to be.
Even though they are a quarter of the Park tools price, it's still pretty expensive for a pair of pliers.

Works well. Had no trouble tensioning cables. Saves a lot of time. A must for the tool kit.

Quality pair of pliers that make cable tensioning a piece of cake. Why pay more for park?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brevik Nice product.
Easy to adjust wires. Only dowside is in the end that supports on the breaks or gears, should be a softer material. Easy tomake marks if you have to hold it in a trickypossition.

Great product, well made, does the job it's supposed to do! Why pay more. CRC prices and delivery service the best around the web.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sinbad Simple, functional, cheap!
I've not used any other similar tools, but these certainly made the job (front derailleur setup) very easy, when I couldn't get the necessary tension by hand. Simple, functional, durable and excellent value!

This tool is perfect and you don't need to spend more money to do the same job than it.
