Plesk VS cPanel

Which Control Panel is Better For WordPress - Plesk VS cPanel
I'm considering switching over to Plesk (linux). Is there a cPanel Wordpress toolkit? The reason is that all my clients are all Wordpress users and so I'm considering to make this switch. Your thoughts?

CPanel is considered the leading product for hosting management. of course you can still inside it install wordpress package.
from your CPanel, click on site software

No doubt about it.

Having worked on Plesk for many years and moving to CPanel going back to Plesk was a real pain. Plesk might have updated since I last used it but since taking on WP administration on a large scale CPanel has been my preference - I do everything (files, DB, cron) and manage multiple sites in one interface.

Both packages are excellent and will do the job you need them to do for WordPress. Plesk has had a major overhaul (Plesk Onyx) and is really nice to work on. I think Plesk is slightly cheaper and will run on more operating systems. Apparently it's UI is cleaner. Both offer great support.

Ultimately, they'll both do what you want them to. If money isn't a deciding factor, and your going to be running it on a compatible Linux system (cPanel = 3 distros (Redhat / CentOs / CloudLinux) | Plesk = 14 distros + Windows), then it may just come down to personal preference.

If you're feeling really adventurous, both offer free trials, so you could install each of them onto a throw-away server (Vagrant / VirtualBox) on your local PC and have a play.

Setting up a clean Vagrant box takes about 5 minutes. Installing Plesk take about 20 (don't know about cPanel). You would then have 2 fully functioning webservers running the control panels right on your WIndows PC - nothing to break / nothing to worry about. If you trash the server, just bin it go again.
