I went through another strap wrench today and am looking for suggestions on nice ones.

Desired parameters:
-Tough
-Replaceable strap
-Plastic coating on teeth that engage strap so if you slip you don't f-up shock body
-Smallish, I've got a 9point8 Fall Line and it is super hard to get the collar nut off (WRENCH FLATS!!!, if you're listening 9point8)

Have never broken a strap-wrench, have a few, using that to remove a collar though is asinine on the part of the company. I would suggest heating it up with a hair-dryer first to help break it free, maybe use some penetrant too.

I've wrapped things like that with a strip of hard rubber, tightened a hose clamp on it, and then gripped the hose clamp gently pushing against the hose clamp screw with channel-locks to turn it.

I have used, destroyed and collected strap wrenches. The best one I've found is the Unior one.

They don’t have replaceable straps but they were cheap (forget just how much) but I got a two pack of craftsmen strap wrenches that have worked out good for me. I also have a Mac one with tough cloth belt and steel buck that uses a 3/8 or 1/2 drive ratchet but not suitable for delicate stuff.
