Hey everybody,

I received a shipment of NWS tools, and launched a quick reviews. NWS is an awesome tool brand, full of awesome ideas, not overly accessible everywhere but I imagine that will soon change. Would appreciate any feedback,

First one is The combination pliers, massive focus on ergonomics, and a couple of cool innovations.

Thanks in advance for any input,:thumbup:

It may be just on my side but I'm not able to view the videos..saying there is an error. I have many of NWS tools, very nice stuff. I really like their water pump pliers. Apparently Klein does as well with their rebrand model. I'd like to see a fullsize linesman from NWS.

I place new links on top the youtube segments, hopefully that will direct you

The idea of those NWS combo pliers is a good idea for the ergonomics but, the problem comes down to the ability to: 1. Put them into a standard tool pocket and 2. the switch being non-insulated. As far as those NWS strippers go, it's too much work to dial it in every time I need to go strip some wire. :thumbdown:

Buy a gun holster, problem solved :blink: the switch is plastic, but just the movement is the issue, really scary you know someone will die from it.

Their wire strippers are special use exclusively, they could come in quite handy in outlying situations. But the problem is exactly what you said time to configure it...
