PROS
Has stepped type coiling jig on handle, covering all the commonest sizes. Cover screws down to prevent sticking the wire brush into yourself. Spare brush head. Authentic item, and the makers give you free entry into a draw when you authenticate.
CONS
Need to be careful on complex builds to avoid snagging wires in coil and leaving a short.
Useful tool, not just for cleaning the gunk off coils and (if you have the dexterity) winding the coils, but for combing out cotton wicks to get all the fibres nice and parallel, so they wick cleanly. Spare head is particularly useful for this, as it means you can have one for cleaning and one for combing. The cover screwing down over the wire brush part is good for use as a handle when using the jig part which is built into the handle of the brush, either for wrapping coils or for holding or tweaking them when installing.

Heat proof. Non-conductive to both heat and electricity. Good shape for getting into awkward parts at the back of a coil.
CONS
None found
Good alternative shape for reaching awkward bits of coils that just don't want to behave, especially for those with less flexible wrists or hands. After seeing first review I was concerned, but used a gas flame to glow them and they still pinched a coil fine. I don't know what he heated them with to melt them, but it isn't anything I use! I'll probably get the full set of shapes now I know these are good.

Heat proof. Non conductive. 3 most common sizes for basic coils. Legs of the tweezers are 4mm, for those into larger builds who can do without the jig part.
CONS
No handle puts hands close to hot coils - be careful! Only 2 of the 3 sizes of pin have a matching hole in the jig, so the 2mm one wobbles (but still wraps fine). 2.5mm was slightly undersize (2.39mm).
Very useful for tweaking builds when installing on the atomiser, as ceramic rods & tweezers allow use on hot coils even while firing, as they are non-conductive. Having arthritis I find the atomiser grip tool in the handle of the tweezers very useful on those toppers that seem to self tighten in use. The smaller gripper in the middle is even handy for squeezing those nasty little hard plastic 10ml juice bottles, as well as unscrewing stuck atomiser parts. The points of the tweezers are fine enough to strum the inside of all but the tinyest coils, and (a bonus I didn't expect) are 4mm, giving an extra winding size if you can manage without the jig. Great value for money.

This shape and bore suits me perfectly. Fit well on all my atomisers. Great to have spares for rotating through cleaning.
CONS
Could be better O rings
These were just what I was looking for, and I may well be buying more in the future.

Excellent build quality. High precision - all tips meet exactly. Very good value set.
CONS
None
These tweezers will have many uses beyond just wicking atomisers (which is what I got them for). They look good enough to be used in surgical procedures, although I do not intend carrying any out! I've certainly seen instruments of no better quality being used on the occasions when I've needed minor surgery or stitches. I've never complained my tools are too good though, and I'm not about to start now! Just don't try using them to shape hot coils - that is what ceramic ones are for, and the tips of most of these are so fine they would very quickly deform if subjected to those kind of temperatures - although they could be sterilized at any sensible temperature or run through an ultrasonic cleaner. I could happily use these for work under a microscope, and cannot detect any imprecision in the accuracy of the meeting of the (needle sharp, in most cases) tips, even using the strongest magnification I have at present.
