Was just wondering what brand of pliers all of you prefer to use, Klein , Channellock or Ideal. I've been using Klein since I started, but some fellow electricians swear by channellock. What's the difference in your opinion.

Klein first for me. Then, if absolutely necessary, I would bow to Ideals. Nothing else compares.
