Love the premium bander. I bought the smaller and less expensive bander and found it cumbersome and awkward to use. The premium banded was easier to use. The band opening allowed my testicles to pop through easily, and bander was easier to removes after the band snapped on. Thus starting the castration process.

This is exactly what I wanted. Good quality and works as advertised. easy to operate with one hand. I would just advise to place a little loop of string around the bad before you place the band or removal might be a little difficult, if you are not planning on actually castrating your man.

I have weak hands and I was a little worried I would have issues but this pair has a great leverage ratio!

Pros:
Easy to expand ring with one hand.
Has a "latch open" loop which allows you to use both hands if needed prior to releasing the band
Opens wide enough to move scrotum into the opening
light weight

Cons:
It is a little tough to roll the band off afterwards

Improvements: an age old issue with this method, is that as you begin to release the tool, and the mechanical parts move into the scrotum, one or both testicles will slide back above the narrow opening. I would be nice if there was a way to drop a loop about 1cm in diameter, down around the 'target' prior to fully releasing the tool to keep the gonads in place.

Commentary: As most reviewers mention, it can be a little tough getting the band off the "fingers". This is not an issue related to this particular tool. It obviously helps if you have a two person team, so one can hold the animal while one works the loop loose. Assuming you have the animal restrained either by a human or tied, it is easiest to pull the loop off of one finger at a time. I used my thumb nail to push it off. Obviously you don't want to risk cutting into the rubber, weakening the band. If you expect this "challenge" you're do fine!

Captain Obvious: Make sure you verify both testicles are on the outside (in the "bag") before you take the band off of the metal fingers. It's amazing how easy it is for one of them to slide back up inside as you're dropping the band down. One of the oldest jokes in our family is my Grandfather responding to my dad's question about a calf he and my Mom banded earlier in the year. The calf was to go to market as a steer.

I never thot I would be reviewing a castration ring plier, lol. I grew up on a farm. We used these to "band" young livestock rather than to put them under the knife. Banding with this device works extremely well by basically pinching off the supply to the manhood of the particular species, and eventually that there manhood just dries up and falls off. That being said, that is NOT what I bought this particular set of pliers for. I bought these for banding off the various urinary, reproduction, fecal, etc, etc, tracts while processing deer. Yes, I said it--processing deer. *** DISCLAIMER *** Use at your own risk. I cannot guarantee that you won't have a band slip off and ruin your meat by getting urine or feces on it, but I used this plier this last deer season with great success for sealing off the above-mentioned tracts. It is SO much faster and less cumbersome than tying off with string. Well worth the investment if you are processing very many deer. The replacement bands are also affordable.

Engineer didn't consider the "marble bag" size. Works very well until you release...the band does not come off..very awkward. you can't let go of the sack with one hand to pull the band off. doesn't close small enough to release the band on it's own, you have to pull the band off by hand....I band my calves at 2 to 3 days old, so are pretty small...sent it back for a refund...

Product is a real nut. Well built made of steel and aluminum. Works well on young Bovines.
I especially like the clasp at the bottom which locks the pliers giving you two hands free. Some
times two hands are needed to corral the youngsters who are not wanting to depart with the
family jewels.
