I have a bunch of Jet ones next to my HF ones and always grab the jet first, mainly because of the comfort of the grips. My HF ones still work perfectly fine and do exactly as they are told :). They are a bit more fussy though to get locked on the bar as the jet have a trigger. These (if like the HF) you gotta lift the handle and slide on the bar and sometimes it’s hard to lock when you try to clamp. Once you get the technique down, there’s no problem after that.

I feel the same way with Bessey vrs. Jet clamps, Bessey are a bitch to setup, tighten & loosen…
Sorry but BESSEY’S are has beens, use to be’s…
You want the best Parallel Clamp out there now, go with JET…

Grab them when they go on sale…
