Evolution RAGE 7-S 80mm 710W Jigsaw 230V
Not perfect from the box
New from the box I found the laser line to be off by about 15 degrees. I almost returned the jigsaw for this fault, however, I found that the laser line can be adjusted, a feature not explained in the manual... I have only used the jigsaw a few times and twice the footplate shoe has popped off. Also the footplate guard does not fit tightly into the footplate shoe and it can take a little bit of patience to refit them both to the jigsaw. The footplate shoe is made of rigid plastic and as it's popping off already, this does not give me much confidence on the reliability of this component.
You also have to be careful when picking up the jigsaw as there is no trigger guard and it's very easy to start the blade running accidentally.
Performance wise the jigsaw cuts well and the adjustable trigger allows plenty of control on your cutting

The best jigsaw I've ever had
It is great quality, great value for an astonishing price. In this set you get 5 multipurpose jigsaw blades, which will last for a long time and you don't have to exchange them.
Laser is really useful, air blow and dust extractor essential. It is quite heavy but in my opinion it is an advantage.

Good to handle with quick release blades cant go wrong at the price.

I don't use a jig saw enough to justify spending a lot. Already own an Evolution tool which I'm very happy with so bought the Jig saw. Yeah it's a bit big and heavy but when you're cutting you don't even notice it, I kind of like it's solid feel when using it. The laser sight is great and it's been doing an excellent job for me. Overall, well happy with it, hope it lasts, will be gutted if it breaks.
