Lineman's Pliers - Compound Act - 8" - Steel - Red and Black is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not live up to Craftsman name Cons - Pliers are stiff, take two hands to open. I opened and closed pliers multiple times, did not get any better Because of the compound action, the jaws seem to open mainly from one side. This made grabbing wires difficult as I would always miss judge where the jaw would be. Pro - Cutter worked very well, but I only cut 12ga wire. I'm returning these and buying something else.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little pricey These are good cutter bought for the purpose of cutting braided cable 1/16 they cut great and are. It too big the Pivoting actions takes a bit getting used to but they are good over all a little pricey for what they are. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Trust me when I say this makes cutting wire easy. I'm 48 and had a kidney transplant, so my strength isn't exactly the greatest these days. That said, I have been able to one-handedly cut both 12/2 & 12/3 Romex cable. My official lineman's tool can't even come close to cutting 12/2 with both hands. I highly recommend these. They are also really good with twirling wires together. If you are replacing old electrical work, these are a must-have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They bite and won't let go! I bought these for having a decent set of compound linesman's and definitely got more than I anticipated. The grips are firm but comfortable, the steel seems to maintain a fairly decent edge after rigorous use, and the gripping power is astounding. I'd check em out.
