  • Earplugs off Amazon comes with a card showing their 1 star reviews helps a little, but it's still a gamble. - Source: Reddit / 11 days ago

    That hex ferrule crimper will probably work just fine. As long as there's enough adjustment for a decent range of sizes, it's not super critical. As far as brands go, I'd recommend reading reviews (and maybe trying one of the review checkers like Review Meta or Fake Spot, etc to weed out the robot reviews).

  • Good quality pet products and brand
    Thanks for the warning on Orijen. About Amazon reviews, those can be easily faked. It's well known that many knock-off companies buy 5-star reviews. I recommend using to rate the product reviews. Even then, you can't be sure that it's not fake. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
