I'd advocate for this tool over lots of others. Some other classic tools bend because they are too thin, break because they are the wrong formulation, are J-hooks which tend to bust more frames--but not so with this one. Is this the best?
We could argue this like we could argue our favorite guitarists. This is a good tool, it is what I use, and it is the gift I give to friends whether they are starting out, or they need to replace their last ones.
