"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 line (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 :)"
