I had the 369 Linemans. The 349 are listed for 51 USD on Channellock's website, about 2x the price of the 369. I wonder what the difference is and what makes them more expensive than the Klein D2000 series?
I can tell you that the 369s lasted 2 months before they got so loose that the cutting edges fell out of alignment. Also, I pulled one blue ribber handle off once when pulling a fishtape. That could probably happen with Klein, too, though. I liked them and they are a good price, but I went to the Klein heavy duty sidecutters after that and like these more.
