Journeyman 9 in. High-Leverage Side-Cutting Pliers - Heavy-Duty Cutting is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from average The journeyman series grips tend to come unglued fairly easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from expensive yet great... Ive used these side cutters for a while now. i won't ever use something different. you may say that the other klien side cutters that are about 15 bucks cheaper will do the same thing but i've used them both and these just work better and feel more comfortable

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Affordable. I rated these Klein lineman pliers at 4, which is good. I did not give them a 5-star excellent rating, because the rubber grips tend to get loose, especially if you are using them as a professional mechanic/electrician to install wiring harnesses and battery cables on a daily basis. They are perfect for the construction workers and the do-it-yourselfers who are "in and out" of home improvement stores. It's like a kid at a candy store, were you grab what you want. In my experience, I didn't take them back to get an exchange. I sold them online for half the price, and I went ahead and purchased some Snap-on 9 1/4 lineman pliers for nearly $80.00 dollars with taxes. The price might sound absurd, but I have found that they cut better with less effort, while the rubber grips are much softer and more secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! This is probably the best set of linesman's pliers I have ever used. Cuts through electrical cable quickly and cleanly. Well worth the price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Linesman Pliers on the market I only ever buy the 2000 series in 28 years as an electrician. Any other brand just won't hold up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great tool to use along with my fencing pliers. this tool is not only for electricians, but for other trades as well. being on a ranch this tool will not only help with electrical but also mending barb wire fencing, using tie wire, cutting certain nails/wire etc. it also makes for a good hammer when in a pinch.
