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.

Klein pliers with those ugly hard red plastic Ideal handle covers that last forever.channellocks tools don't seem to be hardened as well as Klein ot Ideal IMHO.
