It worked for me on Renthal and stock chains, but this new DID Xring chain broke the tool :). I use it correctly, but the chain won. The guys at the shop had to use their burley "hit it with a hammer" chain tool.

Just FYI.

Only use DID Xring chains here and have never had a problem with the pin breaking on mine.
Of course, I always grind down both sides of the pin before pushing it though.

Are you tightening it down as hard as you can agianst the plate before trying to push the pin though. I have heard you can break the pins on the breaker if you dont tighten it up as much as humanly possible.
