The angled jaw and flat cutting side is made for cutting soldered through-hole components and does so quite well.
the PVC handle grants decent grip and the spring is just right.
As with all component cutters, it will bend and get an uneven cutting surface of used on to hard and thick materials. This has not happened to me yet.
My work experience has taught me that even professional models suffer from this, albeit less.
the design is well known and used with many different fabricators. the spring is different but it works all the same.
When you got something thick/hard,
investing the 10 seconds it takes to get out the proper wirecutters will increase this cutters life dramatically.
Then again they are so cheap you can just buy two or three^^
need a pcb clipper?
No reason no to go with this one.
