I bought some last year after watching Marc use his. They have the little release tab on them to open them. Play with them before buying to make sure that's what you want.

Today I have a nice mixture of old school Besseys, Bessey Revos, Jorgys and Jets. 
If I had to rank them I'd put them as follows:

 

1 - Bessey Revos

2 - Jets

3 - Old school Besseys

4 - Jorgensen

 

Opinions are like backsides, however, everybody has one.
And you usually assume everyone else's stinks.

Chet, care to elaborate on the reasoning behind your rankings? I know it's just your opinion, but I'd still value your opinion over random reviews and whatnot online.

Anybody have a link ?

I've never had an issue with my jorgensen clamps of any kind really. F body Parallel or cabinet masters. I really like them and have never had one stick myself.

Well, really you can't go wrong with any of the four. The old school Besseys I think are the original and still a great clamp. The Jorgy's are fine and they seem super strong like you could crush something into powder with them. The only thing about the Jorgy's that bothers me is that they seem to stick from time to time and that can be annoying.

Both the Jets and the Revos are great clamps. My preference is for the Revos, but only slightly. I don't like the release tab thingie as much as the smooth operation of the Revos. Handle toward the bar to close away from the bar to open. Simple and smooth...

 

Believe it or not I also like the little clips that come with the Revos. I use those all the time to make parallel sides and also simply to keep glue off the bars. In my opinion the Revos are the perfect parallel jaw clamp. I can't think how they could be improved.

Seems like most of the online sites are showing a partially discounted price now, around 25% or so. I guess maybe they will discount them more tomorrow?

Fwiw, last year it looks like the pricing for the sale was:

12": $22.50

24": $25.00

30": $30.00

40": $32.50

From acme tools based on a post from last year on this site.

cha ching! free shipping on $100 or more, which was really easy to do at 50% off. I could have got a bunch more, but had to restrain myself.

 

And I think they will go nicely with my old-skool Besseys. I've basically got a hodge-podge of clamps any way. the more the merrier, or you can't have enough clamps - whatever colloquialism, it don't matter to me. But yes, I always get em' in teams of four.

It may be me, but the prices Acme has listed is not a discounted price!

Add to cart. It applies the discount there.

So, on Acme looks like the 12", 24" and 40" are half off.  Others are regular price as of right now.  Beaver Tools has those plus the 50" half off.

 

Ordered 6 x 24", 6 x 40" from Acme before I checked Beaver.  Once I saw they included the 50" I ordered 4 from them.

 

Both places were free ground shipping for orders over $100.

 

Officially in the dog house now, but should be set for clamps.
