so,
non replaceable cutters ---> minus 2$
useless cap crimper ---> minus $6
mixed colors and finishes with ugly result ---> minus $10
not covered by warranty --->  minus $15

but, instead of taking it from the price, they added it to it    :facepalm:

This kind of thing actually makes me remarkably angry.

Let's face it, one of the main reasons for buying a Rebar is the plier head with the replaceable cutters, and it has been taken out and replaced with the standard Charge/Wave head, which basically means it has been downgraded from what it was originally.

The Rebar, according to Leatherman has an MSRP of $59.95, which means that you can usually pick them up for $50 or less, so why the hell would someone pay $80 for a downgraded one?  Or $75 for one that is "slighty torqued," whatever that means?

And, with no warranty on these, the user is completely up a certain creek without a paddle.

I really want to like TTC, but the very fact that they are allowing these to sell with their name on it, well, I am very disappointed in them.  They could at least offer to warranty the tools since they did the work on them.  Heck, I bought exactly the same "customized tool" from a member here for around $20 a couple of years ago, and if I recall correctly, I sold it for the same amount to another member. 

This is a serious rip off, and I feel bad for anyone who gets sucked into this one.  I have been very tempted to make a comment on the post telling people how smurfed up this is and that they should stay away, but instead I decided to just mention it here.

there will always be fools, rich people and fanatic/fanboys, but as they say

a fool and his money are soon parted,
these smurfs know how to make profit from them  :twak: 

sorry but if it were me, I'd have commented on it  :salute:  I believe I owe it to the community

I would've commented too.

But that might be my impulsivity...

Honestly, I mostly didn't because this is another online dealer, and, as an online dealer myself (sort of) it looks really bad for me to take pot shots at someone else.  And, I know how annoying it is when someone takes a shot at you in public like that, so I really don't want to get into that.

Maybe if it was TTC directly I'd feel differently, but I hate taking shots at dealers who are often just trying to pass along the smurf they are given.

There was a time when TTC sold these off on eBay as lots as clearance. It is obvious that they harvested components on these Rebars and upgraded the Charge TTis (likely). I can hardly blame TTC for these creations.

I do not think TTC serialized these.

While I generally agree with the spirit and most details of this thread...are we convinced that the replaceable cutter plyers are indeed an upgrade?

I love my Rebar. Been carrying it daily since September. How's that for a challange? But when I compare plyers heads, especially with the New Charge and Wingman Plus series, I have to wonder how weak the plyers may be, due to the material removed. Someone on here has had numerous fails of the replaceable wire cutter plyers...

Having said that, I am also of the opinion that the cap crimper heads are mostly useless and are also weakened in comparison to the regular plyers  heads, so...yeah. I wouldn't buy these for half the normal price, never mind what these jamokes are askin'

I want scissors in a Rebar but not for $80 and not with the pliers downgraded. If Leatherman ever offered a Rebar with scissors I'd be standing in line for it.
