I was just wandering about what you guy think is the best chain breaker. I will probably get the chain breaker by park just seeing if there's anything better.

Park Tools are GREAT.

IF you run a half link-find out if the one you choose is compatible-some don't work well with them.

They are recommend for half links. I've never had an issue w a 9 dollar lacasa or a park tool.

Shadow chain breakers are recommended for half links but work just as well with full link chains too. I've never had any issues using mine and the little pin that comes with it to help keep your chain lined up when adding a link is very useful


Whatever you get just make sure you use it right and don't force the chain breaker cause that's how you break them and a lot of people will do that then blame the chain breaker when it was their own fault

I use the park tools chain breaker at work. The pins snap fairly easily. I use it a lot, but I've snapped or bent them after a few uses before.
I use the shadow one at home (and keep it in my bag incase someone comes in with a half link chain) and it's awesome

I use a park tool chainbreaker, I've used it with halflinks with no issues. But depending on your halflink chain, it might not work.
