Proscomfortable, sharp & stout
this tool will last longer than you unless you recable your bike every day.
ProsSuper sharp, feels good in your hand, spring loaded.
This is a must-have for anyone doing cable work at home. I have yet to find a cable-cutter that offers the value of this one, and not for lack of trying.
ProsCuts through cables like butter, has a cable-end-crimper that works really well
I have only used them a few times so far but it leaves a nice flush cut with no burs on the cable and housing. My LBS has used there pair for years. I'm sold
ProsVery strong, well made
ConsA bit pricey
I bought this to replace my own shifter/brake cables and housings and it has worked awesome so far.
ProsGood Clean cuts
Highly recommend this cutter. Cuts clean, works as intended and will remain sharp for a good long while. A very solid feeling cutting.
ProsDoes a great job at cutting shifting housing cleanly. Nearly all shops use this one. Long lasting cutter.
It has remained a consistent and precise as the day 1. Park Tool hit a homerun, performance wise, with this one. As long as you use the cutter for only its intended purposes you'll have it for years.
It's time to put away those wire cutters and get something that will actual do the job properly.
Pros- Cuts cables and housing cleanly and evenly, with minimal effort
- Durable and well built
- Well designed and thoughtful layout
Cons- Price, $50 is pretty steep for a pair of cutters
These cutters are great especially if you run mechanical brakes. Regular cable cutters seem to leave the ends of cables frayed, but these do not nearly as badly. The jaw design also forces the cable or housing to stay in the jaws rather than slipping as they cut.
ProsClean cuts, cut housing and cables easily, jaw design
Great solid pair of cutter for cables and housing. Probably the best out there. Stay sharp for 18 months of constant use.
Picked this tool up so I could start doing my own cable and casing changes. I have done a hand full of cable changes for friends and myself. Using this tool, it has been very easy. The wire cutter is spot on; however, the casing cutter is usually less than perfect. Overall, a great tool and one of the cheapest cable/crimping tools on the market.
ProsGood price, quality tool, and works.
Conscasing cutter was just shy of perfect cuts (if thats really a con).
