I've used both the octopus clamps and the CHS clamps and I just had better results with the CHS ones. When using the octopus clamps, my hair would curl around the handles and make it VERY tough to remove without getting caught and causing frizz. I broke down and purchased the ones from CHS and they work much better for me. More lift and no tangling.
