Very good set of shock shaft pliers. No scratches or noticable marring on the shock shaft surface. The shock shaft pliers are super helpful with removing and installing shock end balls. Well built and durable so far, makes screwing in the shock ends a cinch. As an added benefit it makes a great nut cracker when you're snacking on nuts and working on your rc's. Works especially well on pistachios that haven't split yet. Just make sure you clean off all of the shock oil before you go cracking your nuts.
WOW I had no idea what I was missing as far as tools till I got these. Absolutely an rc MUST HAVE.
Very versatile & handy tool to have in the tool kit. Quality built, & quality to the touch. way to go Protek, you made a keeper..
i used this tool for the first time, an i loved it, i also really like that it can install, and remove ball studs with easy, you got to get one of these
This is one tool you should definitely have in your pit bag. I've had mine for a couple of years now and I wouldn't know what to do without them!!
The TruTorque Shock Pliers are no joke and worth every penny! The design is incredibly ergonomic and gets the job done with ease. The Ball tool built into the handle is brilliant. No more tweaking Hollow Balls in with needle nose pliers or gouging your rod ends trying to get them out. Nicely done ProTek.
Great tool for holding the shaft while threading on the end. Used plastic over pliers b4 to keep shafts unmarred. So much easier with these and haven't marred any shafts yet. Didn't know what I was missing.
Having good tools makes RC a much more fun hobby. This is one of the top tools in my box. Makes working on shocks very easy now. My favorite feature is the ability to deal those dreaded ball ends. A must have tool for your box!
Best shock tool I had in a long time, and a must in your toolbox
I've finally had a chance to purchase this tool, as its always "out of stock" - I guess due to it popularity and positive reviews. I normally hate building/rebuilding shocks but this made it all so easier. I wish I had this tool sooner.
Absolutey a must when building shocks,great tool,great price,use it more than antthing for tuning shocks,changing Pistons is not a chore anymore!!!!!
This is such an awesome tool, it's amazing. Useful in so many ways. Had it in my wishlist for a while and I finally grabbed one. So happy I did, guys you gonna get one.
All simply a tool to have in the trunk, his work was beautifully, essential to any owner of RC
I have used these once and I already don't know how I ever lived without them.
Wooooooooooow , such great pilers , I used so many times and looks fine and very heavy duty too. Thanx
I've used the shock shaft pliers a bunch since I got them. What a great tool, one of my best purchases yet. The pillow ball remover/installer is genius, works great.
Recently got this and loving it so far. I am using it for my Losi 8-ight-e 3.0 buggy build. Does what it supposed to do. The fitting (shock shafts, shock caps, ball links) are very nice and smooth (feels professional :) ). There are other shock pliers out there (like the Tamiya and Integy ones) but I would never switch over to them. The Tamiya one seems for smaller shocks. The integy one...na...I'll stick with this.
Great shock tool. The best I've used. The shock shaft pliers are as expected. Holds the shaft easily without marring the shaft, but the real bonus is the built in tool for assembling the ball ends. I use it when building all of my kits for assembly of all of the turnbuckle ends and shock ends. Really make it easy to assemble and DISASSEMBLE the ball ends. Nice work on this tool A-main!!
This is the best shock tool i have used so far. I have tried so many but could never feel the right grip with my hands. these seem to be so easy to use i love them. i even used these to pop in some new ball end in my d8 lineup and camber link balls also. this worked on them all. the car i have used this on so far are the team asc ft 2wd and 4x4, the hodbodies d8, 8t, ve8 and a t maxx. this worked on ever ball link on all cars with out a hick up. it also worked on ever shock shaft on all my cars so easy. i even used it to take of some caps just to try it and that worked good but i always just finger tight my shock caps so i dont know if i will be doing that often but it will work. i think i tried everything this toll was made for and accomplished them all with ease. It is a great buy beats the other ones i have tried so far by a lot.
why have I not bought the former
