Excellent tool at a great price!

Pros: Feels well contstructed, good action

Cons: Sometimes the cable release isn't the smoothest - this is very minor though

Love this tool! Much less expensive than any of the others I've been able to find locally, it works really well, and the design is better than most other "cheap" compression tools like it (longer handle for instance).

Also, thanks to monoprice for such fast shipping, got it in 2 days!

Nice tool, but.........

Pros: Solid well constructed tool.

Cons: Does not work on 8574 connectors as one reviewer and video stated.

I bought this tool with a bag of 50 8574 F type connectors. The width of the connector seal end made it impossible to use with this tool. It is a nice well built tool, just not for this particular connector. Monoprice refunded price quickly, but by the time I paid to return it I got about 1/2 of what I gave for it. Crimper 7050 works perfect for these connectors.

Pros: works great! very solid construction and of course the price!!!

Cons: None

This tool feels great in your hand. It is just the right weight. I have used it for about 20 connections so far and it has worked every time. I ordered the wrong connectors for the tool but found out that the right ones are (8574). Be sure to use the on line support if you have any questions. This would have saved me from returning the connectors. Thanks again Monoprice!

Pros: Seems fairly solid

Cons: Does not work with producr 8692 weatherproof connectors. The connectors are too wide to fit in the compression chamber.

Wish it was not recommended with product 8692

Great crimper, but very little wiggle room

Great crimper, but buyer beware the socket where you put the RG6 Connector is really snug, and offers very little wiggle room in terms of length or width.

While this is a non-issue with standard RG6 Type Connectors, it will not fit oversized RG6 connectors like product 8693 due to its waterproofing rubber boot and wider knob.

I have several crimpers, and found that this was the only one that wouldn't accommodate the larger size.

You could argue that a tighter fit is desirable, but at least for me, I wish it offered a bit more wiggle room.
