For inserting roll pins, the pilot punch is better than a solid pin punch, but not much better. You will need to use a bigger size pilot punch to get the roll pin started, and still it will be quite difficult. Better to get a roll pin starter punch (I use the double-ended Schuster set for my Marlin roll pins).
As for quality, I only use Mayhew, after trying some others. They are available in British and metric sizes, they are all size-marked on the punch, the handles are articulated to reduce slipping, and they do not bend under normal use. Take a little care, and they will last a very long time. And, the design is different than the Mayhew pin punches (i.e. flat-head punches for solid pins), so that I do not grab the wrong type by mistake.
