I only use RTI fittings, the tool can be used for sizes 1/2" to 1" in size. Tool runs about $115. Pex pipe is Pex pipe, just manufacturers of the different fittings give a name for there pipe, just each type will use there special tool.

There is also a cheaper tool (about $50) which involves bolting two halves using a wrench to make the crimp. Works OK but may be difficult to use in confined spaces. The two ends usually can do two different sizes.

Check - they have a good selection of tools ranging in price.
