We want to pass on our savings to our customers, so we've lowered the price of this item. However, since our price is now below the manufacturer's suggested retail price, we are restricted by the manufacturer from showing the price right away.
These pliers are great so far. I have not got to use them much so far. They seem to work well. I hope they hold up in time. They feel pretty light weight and don't look like they are really well built. Only time will tell.
