Pro's:
Very, Very strong. Deffinatly has 72 teeth (which is allot) like advertised, and can fit into some hard to reach places very well. Helped allot a couple of times when I used it in the field.

Con's:
Ratcheting mechanisim is heavy and therefore may only tighten bolts that are all ready quite snug. Heavy, lopsided and just a little on the bulky side, but not too bad.

Overall:
Great price and i really want to like this ratchet. It comes in handy sometimes and can be used in pretty tight places. However you may have to tighten the bolt to a certain point before the "hard to turn" ratcheting mechanisim will actually tighten/loosen a bolt/nut instead of just turning it back and forth.

a) It doesn't appear to be user-serviceable, which sucks if you're like me and like to use your own lube on the gear mechanism.
b)The head is extremely bulky, to the point where it pretty much negates the "swivel" advantage.
c) The ratcheting mechanism is *extremely* stiff, meaning you're likely to undo a bolt while tightening it. I contacted Tekton to ask if maybe I had a defective one (couldn't take it apart because of a)), and they said "no" it's just that stiff.

Not to advertise another brand, but I ended up buying a GearWrench 120 tooth flex head and I'm much happier with it.

It looks good. It seems solid. Has a very tight ratchet travel. The head pivots. This can only make it more useful. It replaces a Craftsman. I have given up on Craftsman. I have had a couple of the newer ones come apart. Went back to Sears and they went into a drawer with a couple of dozen in it and gave me a "repaired" one. It fell apart on the way to the car.

I read the reviews so I was hoping it would surprise me but the item is what you see and to look at it, the looks are good.
The racheting part is tighter then I would like. so once the nut is loose one will have to spin it off. I held some that are smoother in their function, but I paid the cheaper price cause it will serve its purpose I am sure.
Am thinking in tight spots the plastic handle will become an issue where their is minimal clearance. I hope the plastic handle in the future won't become a slipping factor.
For general purpose this will be fine...

Useful tool! It should not be the only 3/8 inch drive in your tool kit, as I think it might not be quite as strong as a standard ratchet, but it's great for anything else.

This was heavier built than I expected for the price. Plus lifetime warranty. Love the 72-tooth design. Great for tight spaces.
