    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    The pros are quite obvious- they are what they are- ideal for manipulating very small objects, from surface mount components to pulling out fine splinters from your skin.

    Cons:

    I think I would have liked to have seen either an additional flat- or square-end pair or to have have one of the pointed pairs replaced, to give a better selection.
    I can echo what another review said about the blunt-end pair not gripping well. I'm going to scuff the inner surface up with a file to improve it.
    Mine were also slightly grubby, but again, easily fixed.

    OtherThoughts:

    The shortest (TS-12) measured 112mm, and the longest (TS-13) 120mm, end to tips.
    Although they say non-magnetic, I think this means they do not retain, or resist retaining magnetism of their own. All three were strongly held by a magnet I had laying around on my bench.

    Bottomline:

    You need tweezers in your electronics toolkit or first aid kit, and these aren't bad at all, though this selection might not provide for all eventualities.
