The Cinch v2.0 is great! I just made my first research journal with it.
Planning to have my 8yr old and I do crafts with this. Also thinking on all the
work projects, house items, and Gifts I can use this for!
Pro's - It's heavy duty, easy to use, flexible (hole placement and size of project), and straight forward instructions.
The coils are inexpensive and can be found for low prices on line.
Con's - Still take time to look at the youtube video's on this despite the instructions.
Not cheap ($105.99 at Hobby Lobby) but if you use a coupon (Monthly 40% off on their website) it
is comparable to the others out there and offer's more flexibility for use.
I've just started book binding and was dealing with rubber cement, clips,etc. when I saw this and the Zutter.
Did a search on line for reviews and this had the best reviews by far. The Zutter had a lot of extra pieces to purchase and calculations for figuring out how to use it and such. Not what I want in a hobby item for crafts.
This did not disappoint! I used it within a few minutes of taking it out of the box. Not complicated and very flexible for hole placement and putting it all together. Would definitely recommend this item - especially if you are into scrapbooking, or do crafts/projects that need to be bound together. This makes it a piece of cake!
