I believe we are esentially in agreement on this point.
Pliers do not a proper crimp make.
Crimping tools that are essentially fancy pliers will seldom make a proper crimp either, but if enough pressure is applied, they can be made to do so. The problem is how to apply enough pressure without smashing the wire right off the spade. This is where the ratcheting crimpers come into their own.
