Model/Year: 4.2

Pros: The chain is completely supported while the pin is pushed out which prevents damage. The way the entire chain sits inside the body of the tool prevents the chain from dropping from the tool

Cons: When I went to replace the pin i dropped the sheath that holds the pin into the tool and there doesn't seem to be a consumer available replacement had to call park.

Recommendation: Park is time tested. Great tool from a great company.

Pros: good tool works well

Recommendation: This is by far the best chain tool available in my opinion. Makes chain work easy. This tool is very well made. I consider this a garage tool. It is to big and heavy for me to carry in my pack.

Model/Year: Master Chain Tool

Pros: Best chain tool I've found
Park brand
Park warranty/customer service

Cons: None

Recommendation: I've had numerous chain tools over the years, but this is my favorite. I am not a shop mechanic, but just work on my bikes at home. This tool has served me well for years. What more to say other than you know what you're getting with Park tools. They're the Craftsman/SnapOn of the bike world.

Pros: Works for all speed chains

Cons: none

Recommendation: Works on all chains. Very solid tool and very comfortable to use. If you need just one chain tool, this is it.

Pros: ergonomic handles, replaceable pins, well built

Cons: none

Recommendation: This chain tool works. Most of the time when working on a bike I will use a masterlink of sorts to take the chain off, but when sizing a new chain this is really helpful. Even on new chains some pins are difficult to remove (especially shimano) and this tool allows you to put a little more torque down than other chain tools.

Pros: Replaceable pins! Large handle makes it easy to put down a lot of torque for those tough to push pins.

Cons: Expensive.

Recommendation: Get it for a shop tool that won't break anytime soon.
