    I have used banjos for years thinking bazookas are too temperamental
    But this is a solid tool. Unless your a bear, u shouldn't have major issues.
    I just wish my boxes were Columbia.

    Top Notch Tool

    Posted by Philma on Jan 20th 2013

    All the little extras on Columbia guns make them the most comfortable to run in my opinion. The cutter ring helps with high angles without lowering the gun to get the cut. New design on the cable drum makes for an easier changeout if ever needed.

    Best Taper I've ever owned

    Posted by Fergusson on May 23rd 2010

    I started renting tools years ago and bought my first set of Columbia in 2004. Best decision I ever made. This is my second Columbia Taper and it won't be my last. Other one still runs fine. Nothing like a new one though.
