"I am a Diesel/Industrial mechanic, which has me working on everything from bulldozers to golfcarts, and I don't know what I would do without these!
Being flex-head, they allow the wrench to get into tight places that wouldn't be possible with a regular wrench, but since they can be locked in place, they allow your knuckles to avoid testing the compressive strength of the nearest cast iron!
I have so far been unable to break any of the Gearwrench line, and I have been known to use extensions, percussive maintenance and jumping with these wrenches, and have been quite pleased with the strength of the ratchet and flex joint.
I did break the lock mechanism on one (abuse on my part involving using the wrench to percuse a hard object. Sometimes you just don't want to crawl out of the bowels of a machine to grab a hammer to beat a bolt in, what can I say!), but I just took it to my nearest Napa Auto Parts who carried the individual wrenches (at higher prices), and they swapped it out as defective for me.
These are the most used out of all my tools (other than my Leatherman Charge XTi!), and my most recommended tool (other than said Leatherman :)"

Gear Wrench Review

By NickandNancy

"I am completly satisfied with this set of wrenches. They are easy to use with a gear ratio that enables you to work in small areas. The flex end is stiff enough so that it maintains its position as you attach to the fastener."

Big time help

"As a wrecker operator, sometimes I need to get under a vehicle to disable the driveline to take it away. These wrenches save me time under the vehicle and allow me to spend less time lying down on the side of the highway. For speed and safety I can't recommend these wrenches enough."

"These are must have wrenches if you are working in tight spaces with little access to bolts (any automotive engine). Also look for the XL version for additional torque. I would recommend the 12 piece of the 8 because there is nothing worse than almost having the right tool for a job."
