I have these.

I like that you can crop in the rear jaw and strip with the front.

No point in paying that much if your just after cutting 10/16mm and 25mm tails. Even a basic toolstation/screwfix pair should do that with relative ease as long as there's no steel involved (pay a little more than these for something that will last if you can afford it).

I use the ck 210mm croppers for everything. I use them to strip twin and earth, flex and Mains tails. They cut upto 16mm twin and earth and I've used then on 35mm tails. Only down side is they aren't insulated.
