    Sorry never seen them or used them but it’s generally good gear .

    Used them but not owned them, true cutters certainly but a bit unwieldy compared to Rothys especially the 22mm.

    I have that set. Bought them very cheap.
    Rarely used them.
    They have a more rounded edge which is nice to grip when turning them.

    It’s generally my preferred make of tool but I’ve just never tried their cutters and some reviews say great and some say terrible

    I have them as a spare set in the glove box of the van. I went back to my rothenberger set as I wasn’t a fan of the Bahco, as other have said they take a while to cut. I used monuments for a while, really liked them but gave them to my apprentice when he was starting out.

    Used several different cutters...found the Bahco's took more rotations to complete cut. Currently using a Rigid combination cutter which is mint

    After hearing everyone’s opinion I think I’ll give them a miss and get the Monument auto cut’s or Kopex again

    I find my Monuments (even the metal bodied ones) tend to nozzle the end of the tube and now use them rarely, only when I am really tight on space. I have a Monument adjustable cutter (tendency to act as a threader if not used with great care) and a miniature Rothenberger adjustable cutter (which is brilliant). I have a Tornado cutter too and it's better than my 15mm (plastic-bodied) Monument autocutter.

    I had the standard metal monument ones years ago and they were good, recently had the plastic clamshell type ones that you open and close but they were pretty ****. I was thinking about Nerrad too but they are expensive

    Interesting. I find the plastic 15mm one is worse than my metal 22 and 28 ones, but I've yet to find an automatic cutter that would make me give up on my adjustable ones..

    I fancy the nerrad ones but they were like £30 for the 15mm ones alone , the bahcos were £25 for 15 and 22.
