"Compression F connectors sound such a wonderful idea. I have tried a number of compression tools and various brands of connectors and all I can say is they work with a little skill and practice. My success rate with this tool is substantially better than other tools I have used so its a thumbs up. Notwithstanding that it is by far the best tool I have used, I still test with a good tug everyone I fit and I still get about 10% being failures. That is far better than when I started. Tool seems well made and should last years. But do remember, it is really important to get the preparation of the cable correct and adjust the tool for the connector you are using"
"This is not a crimping tool but a COMPRESSION tool for waterproof fittings. The tool itself is well made and sturdy and I have no doubt it will do the job with compression fittings but as it didn't state this on the site/catalogue it was returned for a swift refund. For a not exactly versatile tool the price is a bit high."
