I'd agree.  The only disadvantage is the cost of the tool. You need 
both a good stripper that does *exactly* the right strip of the coax 
AND a crimper and dies that *match* the connector you're 
using.  There are lots of slightly different connectors, and crimping 
with the wrong die will almost work right.
