The Lutro0 Customs ATX pin extraction tool performed beautifully. Without comparison to competing models, I found the tool to be durable, easy to use, comfortable in the hand and able to tackle some of the toughest pins.
Amazingly the tool looks almost exactly like it did when I received it over a month ago. Initial doubts about its longevity are no longer a concern. I put it through its paces thoroughly and it still does the job effectively. The metal is thick enough to retain its shape over time yet it is slim enough to easily take on ATX power supplies, even stubborn units from Corsair and Antec. Also is easy enough to use for tired, crippled old hands.
The only other tool I have found that works almost as well is the original Molex mini-fit Jr. tool. If I had to guess I'd think this is a modified version of that tool, but the quality is top notch. Easily BETTER than the mini-fit!
I can highly recommend this tool and I doubt that I will be buying any other ATX tool elsewhere. Unless it is part of a package, which still will likely have an ATX tool that will break.
Probably the best news is that this tool can be had for significantly less than the mini fit, which I have found for $22-35 plus shipping. The ATX tool is currently listed on LC customs website for $15!
Pros: Easy to use. Durable. Can remove stubborn pins. Great value!
Cons: Could use a comfortable grip? Really I'd rather use my own so there's nothing to complain about here.
One suggestion: perhaps offer this with some other LC tools as a package discount, like the Paracord threader, the LC sleeving tool, and the 4 pin extractor.buzznutEdited by buzznut - 3/5/14 at 9:04pm
