    Works great and saves much installation time.
    JAMES A. -- los angeles, CA   1/20/2010
    works like a champ.
    ERIC -- dexter, MI   12/6/2009
    Works great. Cuts just deep enough to easily pull the jacket off but doesn't harm the underlying wires.
    JAMES -- apo, AE   12/3/2009
    I received this item just in time for a large project that I was scheduled to work on, and to say the least, it made life alot easier! This is an excellent product and is useful for any network technician/administrator.

    great product and Service
    TOBY -- erlanger, KY   11/6/2009
    Does the job as advertised, has some trouble on small diameter cables.
    RANSOM K. -- natalia, TX   10/19/2009
    This stripper works great as far as I'm concerned. There's plenty of spring tension on the jaws and it's easy to handle and work. I test stripped a piece of CAT 5 cable, then moved down and stripped a little more so I could see the area I first stripped. I saw absolutely no signs of nicking on the wires themselves. There's a little lifter inside that ejects any trapped insulation. For the price you can't go wrong.
    BRIAN -- wichita, KS   7/27/2009
    Works great. Never cut the copper.
    TIM A -- morrison, TN   6/8/2009

    CROXTON -- machipongo, VA   11/28/2008
    The best of all I've tried. Magically cuts the casing, but never nicks the wires. Very easy to use.
