Looking to get a new chain tool now that I've upgraded to Shimano 11 speed. Which chain tool do you like?

Been looking at the park CT4.3 but sort of on the fence about it since it wouldn't work with single speed chains. Pedro's Tutto looks promising but what other good options should I look into?

Park chain tools are fine, never needed anything else.

The park 4.3 is nice. Why wouldn't it work with SS chains? I've use it just fine.

I like the Park 3.2 better though and it is species to work with any chain... if official endorsement matters to you :)

Pedro's tutto is very nice.
In general, Park tools are inferior. Sorry, but it's true. Threads will have more play, more room for pin misalignment, among other things.
If you have a bike with thick "heavy duty" 1/8" chains, you might very well need a separate tool for that, run-of-the-mill 1/8" ones will be fine though.

I've been using the Acor ATL-2716 chain tool, and i must say, that this is by far the best chain tool i tried. I highly recommend it to anyone. It works with any kind of chain.

Most people use chain tools these days to just remove pins, and they typically do the joining with a PowerLink or whatever. So, if you just need a tool to remove pins and not to fit them, choice of chain tool is really not that critical. As such, something heavy duty will have more life in it.

I have one of these under a different name.. It's the bloody best chain tool.. 11/8 track chain, 10 speed, 9 speed, 11 speed from the big 3. And if you drop a c spaner between the preload screw and the the back of the chain and you can set and shot peen a campag 11 speed chain rivet :thumbup:
