    I don't care for my master cool. It hasn't held up like I expected. The yellow jacket is a much better product.

    Yes, I love my bow bender, and will never go back! Mine is also made by Yellow Jacket and I do have the reverse bend attachment, have used it, but just once, and it worked well with what I needed it for. Like SCtech said, less chances of leakage and less fittings used!

    as far as brand I had a company supplied yj that was in pretty rough shape but still got the job done. I purchased a mastercool recently and it works all the same and I cant really knock the durability because I havent been using it but a few months

    The only problem with a ratchet bender is it doesn't allow bends greater than 90 degrees. I use offset bends entering penetration.and in corners. I also do a lot of piping inside units requiring bends beyond 90. Lever benders also make great p'traps. This is a great cost savings.
