I purchased these because they were half the price of the Channellock and Milwaukee versions, but I returned them the next day.
Given all of the positive reviews, I must have received a bad pair. The ones I bought could barely open 3/4" at the tip of the jaws, and would then get stuck. I could use both hands to force them open slightly further, but then it took two hands to close them again. Apparently poor quality control.
I have other Husky products from Home Depot that are great, but this was the first Husky tool that was a disappointment.
I decided to invest a few dollars more and order the Channellock 6 and 8 inch long nose pliers instead.

I'll be honest - I don't love these. They seem sturdy enough, but they don't open very wide and the action is quite stiff. They don't have a spring to help them open, as expected. I'm used to being able to hold my long nose pliers in one hand and open and close them easily. I've found that I can't do that with these pliers as easily as I could with my old black-handled Craftsman pliers, unfortunately. I really wanted these to be awesome, but for me they are not.
