Two features most impressed me:
1) the slot on each wrench is precise and is chamfered to make it easier to guide the spoke nipple into place.
2) inch and mm sizing info is printed on the handle of each wrench, and letter-sizing (A, B, C) is molded into the metal wrench base.
These are high quality wrenches for a great price!
I measured the spoke nipples on my 700cc wheels to be 0.136", and the Avenir 0.136" wrench (Red coated loop) fit perfectly. Within a few minutes, I was able to reduce the lateral runout to an acceptable level on my wheels without stripping/rounding any of the nipples. The quality on the wrenches is exceptional.
The only complaint I have is that there's no suitable tool holder. It came shipped with a perforated plastic board and 2 nylon zip ties securing the 3 wrenches to the board. But that is not a real deal breaker as I just toss my bicycle tools into a designated storage area.
Overall: 5/5 stars, the price doesn't get any better than this especially at this quality level. If you want to true your wheels or adjust spoke tension, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this wrench set.
I am unsure if it is the wrenches or nipples that aren't machined accurately. I was careful when choosing the size of wrench to use by trying the smallest size on several spokes. Did this until a wrench slipped over the nipple, however, it did have a little play on all spokes. Things worked great but I did manage to round off two nipple on the same wheel which were not very tight. Overall though they do what they are supposed to do.
One warning, though: If you are using the red wrench, chances are you're working on a cheaper wheel, beware that if you are working on cheap nipples that are tough to turn, you have to oil the nipple, otherwise the nipple will strip, and you'll no longer be able to turn it,
