I am a maintenance manager for a seafood processing plant, and I like the design, but they have major flaws.

Pros;
For 1/4" drive they are really nice.
They are easy to use.
Function great.
Take up less space/weight.
Case looks good, is durable and latches good.

Cons;
Sizes are too hard to read. They don't have as much surface area as most sockets, so the writing is very very very... small.
Major bummer - the box sucks for functionality. I am all about tool control and this box is frustrating. The box is made of hard plastic and the sockets sit loosely. If you bump the box, tools fly out everywhere. If you do not open it flat, they fly out. If you set it down open, they fly out. If you sneeze near them, chances are one will fly out. Worst case I have ever seen. The first few times I responded to a crisis in the plant, I spent as much time digging through fish guts to find my sockets as I did working. After a couple of hard lessons, I smartened up. But my workers didn't. Each time they try to help me, we are digging through fish guts looking for sockets....

If you can get past the crummy box and tiny labeling, they are a good set

This is always the first socket set I grab out of my tool cart when working on vehicles and such. The thinner walled sockets dont stick out as far making them fit into spots other socket/ratchet combos just wont. The pass-thru system makes the need for deep well sockets obsolete. These are great for just about any occasion, thier only limit is if you need a very long extension to reach something. Other than that, they are ideal for automotive work and more.

After having this set for s few years now, I couldnt imagine working without one. I must have for any toolbox! (Also consider the set that has 1/4" pass-thru drive as well as the 3/8" which is also available on Amazon.com).

I am a maintenance manager for a seafood processing plant in Alaska. I have 25 years of military Aircraft Maintenance behind me and I love awesome tools. These tools are ok. But... They are not something I would jump through hoops to get. Nor would I call them an investment. I consider all of my tools an investment, but these.

Most of my tools are high end (Snap-on, Proto, Mac and Craftsman). When Gearwrench came out with their ratcheting wrenches, I fell in love. I snatched up the first set I saw in metric and SAE for $15 per set. I think they are the best investment for the dollar I've ever made in tools. I also have a few Gearwrench ratchets which are really awesome as well. So naturally I thought these would be as good as the other Gearwrench products I purchased, and boy was I wrong.

Pros;
They are easy to use.
They look cool.
Functionality is good for light jobs.
Their light.
Case looks cool.
Great for all-thread with standard nuts.

Cons;
* THESE DO NOT REPLACE DEEP WELL SOCKETS! The diameter of the shaft hole is too small when working with narrow walled or undersized nuts. They will work with about 90% of the bolts, but not narrow walled or undersized nuts. A lot of precision equipment use this type of nut, and the nuts outside diameter is closer to the diameter of the bolt. For this type of nut these sockets are useless as a deep well. The bolt or all-thread will not pass through.

* Absolutely useless on bent bolts. Found myself having to use a deep well set or wrenches each time the bolt was bent on the non-grabbing side of the nut.

* Sizes are too hard to read. They don't have as much surface area as most sockets, so the writing is very very very... small.

Picked this set up for a coil-over suspension install I was doing on my 03 Audi A4.
This ratchet was able to fit into places a standard ratchet would not and I was able to remove the nut on top of the strut with this ratchet while I passed a Allen key though the center to keep the strut shaft from spinning.

Quality seems good, didn't have any rounded edges ofter using them all weekend on suspension components which require a good amount of force to break free.

For the price everyone should have this kit in the garage.

I have been very pleased with this set. The best part is that it goes from 15mm to 32mm. That is very rare for a set that is this cheap. Also it has a 1/2 adapter so that it can be used with traditional sockets.

For a pass through set, this is a great set. I love the long handle ratchet with the locking head it will fit just about anywhere. But I did break a 9/16 one time when the socket slipped off a nut I was trying to break loose. If its that tight grab a regular socket set. The sockets are strong but they are also very thin and can break. I wrote to the company and they sent me a new one.

You may not need it every day, but when you need one of these, you're glad you have it. As a shadetree mechanic, I used it to tighten the bolt on a shock absorber - if you know shock absorbers, you know that there's a post that sticks up and it's cumbersome to hold the post and tighten the nut efficiently. An unexpected use that made me love these even more was this: I took the spark plug boots off an engine, and one of the boots/wires were so stuck on, that the wire broke, boot ripped, and I was left with the electrical connection from the spark plug wire stuck onto the spark plug. That connection sticks out past any deep well socket that you would use, so you can't get the ratchet into the socket hole. This tool saved the day. That ONE use made it worth the purchase for me.
