I have both types. I think both are fine for most types of clamping. Now that I’m getting older the 3/4” seem to be getting heavier! The one thing I would caution about is not to get the cheap type that have non sharp teeth (Grizzly white ones) and “grip” into the pipe. I have 10 of the Grizzly ones and am planning on tossing them out as the grip is not good and the lever on them is very difficult to use.

Get the better orange ones (Jorgenson’s or Sears type)

Get the better types, that have 4-5 plates in them.

Don’t buy these
