I thought some cheaper one’s were fine for trying out the concept, and for use plinking or practicing. They worked ok for that, but it became evident pretty quickly that the durability and reliability were not there, just as one would expect.
Do they work? yes. But they are like those cheap emergency tool kits you can buy for your car. When you need them most, it’s usually the case, that those same conditions are ther one’s that are too much for the tools, and all you end up with is a broken tool, and a freshly opened emergency first aid kit, where you discover the bandaid won’t stick to your finger without some electrical tape from the tool kit, which also doesn’t stick, but at least you can tie it with a knot.
