Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SkolVikes Not bad for mid-range price
These snips feature a long "alligator" type jaws, a spring for self-opening, a lock when not in use, and rubberized handle grips. I bought them for good-sized vinyl siding job. Now as the job is nearing completion, I have two critiques: the more obvious one is that the grips (before the job was finished) loosened up around the handles and will now twist out of position when really bearing down for some cuts. The second is not really seen until you use them: it is hard at certain times (especially when the siding is a bit cold) to apply enough force with these to cleanly cut through the top section of the vinyl siding. Even my old conventional Wiss 10" snips seemed to have better leverage for this task.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Travis Very easy to use and the grip is very comfortable
The snip plier cut very easy and they do not need a lot of pressure to cut. The grip feels great and would tell anyone to buy them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by frank235 some slight sheet bending
Purchased to cut copper sheet. Also used for some alum flashing. Some bending of sheet due to blade overlap. Otherwise cuts cleanly and easily.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MJPA Product makes cutting vinyl floor tile a snap!
I was a rank amateur floor tile installer. These snip pliers makes trimming and cutting floor tiles a breeze. To be honest, I only made two mistakes (lost two tiles) during the entire installation. Having no experience, the cutting mistakes were made trimming tile around the door jambs. Other than that, the installation around the toilet went perfect. This is a really great tool and I recommend it to all new comers and pros.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mnhomeguy Doesn't cut plastic well...
I purchased this as it said it cut plastic well. However, I tried to use it to cut landscape edging and it was not a good fit. The snips seemed dull and struggled cutting any plastic that was more than about paper thick.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techcowboy comfortable to use
cuts though a corrigated roof with little effort, my grip improved because of the handle design. Just starting to use it for other chores, does them well too.
