I have been able to work with the heavy duty set of shears the most. The heavy duty model is really handy I truthfully think it can replace the standard. The selector for grip size is great I wear XL size gloves and I have other employees that wear M size gloves each of us can easily use them with a flick of the switch. I used them to cut double thick 3M electrical tape that was used to secure a power wire down 300’ structure that we would normally use a standard utility knife to slice the tape. I have able to use the shears for the whole site instead of my knife, we work suspended at height so blades are risky to us and our gear. The only thing I found was the adhesive from the tape began to stick the blades which slowed their movement. Nonstick coating may help. I even used them to cut Stainless steel hose clamps which i would normally use tin snips, I will say that they did nick the blades some, I realize they were not designed for this task but wanted to see if they could replace multiple tools we carry on our belts. I also compared them to a similar Fiskars brand shear and that brand failed right off the bat because the spring sprung from the handles when I opened the package (used your regular shears for that). I did like their box opener and wider wire cutter. Thanks for the opportunity to try your products.
