Looking to buy an Ah So but I am having trouble finding info on the qualities of different brands and the general value/quality difference between a cheap vs more expensive option. Anyone have any thoughts/ recommendations?
There's sorta the cheap generic one which you find everywhere and then there's the Monopol which I find to be a vast improvement although the action of it takes some getting used to. There's the Durand as well but that's really a pretty specific tool and it weighs a lot just to slag about casually. Wrote up a bit about this sometime back https://www.hudin.com/not-all-ah-sos-are-created-equal/
Thanks this is really helpful!
Miquel hit the nail on the head with the Monopol. Solid product at a great price ($20-$25?).
