    My benditnow's good. Very occasionally ripples a bend on 22 but then I give it a wipe over and it doesn't do it again. The hook's a bit rough though - had to put a bit of tape over it - especially for chrome pipe. Tried a brand new Hilmor and it was nowhere near as good as my benditnow.

    The Bahco ones are lovely to use, but cost a lot and only do one size.

    Why bother pulling bends? I just connect up a bit of hose with a couple of Jubilee clips. Much less hassle :)
