Ok, so they're no good.
It's not a budget issue.
A quality one.
The FUJI ones chime in at £800 and I need somebody to dissuade me or otherwise.
If 800 quid tools fall apart, they are crapper than 150 quid tools that don't.
I just need to know that's all. Guess I won't hear it from the manufacturers.
Nor from RNLI licensed suppliers.
