This is the best as far as I'm concerned. It is built very sturdily and will likely last a very long time. The only ISSUE is the Pins, as in all other cases with chain tools, the pins do tend to degrade over time, this one worked on the first run like a charm, but I could see the wear on the rivet side of the pins. But as you already know most manufacturers have replacement pins available for their chain tools (it's like they know). 60 dollars is a very good price for this sturdy chain tool; a significantly better price than the ~$100+ you might pay for something from RK, or Motion pro. (originally ended up buying the motion pro travel size just to find out it doesn't rivet at the last minute). Good luck, Ride Safe.
