I have one of these from Hobby Lobby, it's great for ali clips but if you use anything bigger like french clips they don't work (holes are too small). Not overly impressed by the quality of the punch (their own brand, McGill looks nicer), after awhile my hand really hurts. I put all my stacked bows on french clips because of the weight of the bow, and I have to double punch which is a huge pain and impossible to get nice looking holes. I've started looking at more industrial type paper punches but they never tell how long the reach is or the size of the holes, it's frustrating.
