Outstanding finish and tooling on these ratchets. The properly designed long and round handle perfectly suits the professional environment for high frequency, extended use and higher torque applications. These are NOT fine tooth design. The traditional 36 tooth design adds more surface area for engagement of the gears dramatically increasing the strength and capability of the ratchet. Fine tooth ratchets have their place in any professional's toolbox and may even work better for the weekend warrior, but a comfortable and traditional high strength ratchet is greatly appreciated by the seasoned. The larger gear teeth and ratcheting action may remind some of their grandpa's ratchets, but this old school design is engineered like this for the strength/durability reasons explained above. In my humble opinion they easily rival the competition at a fraction of the price and with the benefit of the useable quick release function. The one thing (albeit minor) that I would wish for is a metal direction change switch. I've never had a problem with the switch that is installed, it operates easily and smoothly, I guess it just seems out of place on a ratchet so finely finished and tooled. I gladly would pay the extra dollar or two in manufacturing cost to have metal versus the installed professional/ ballistic grade plastic switch.

Worst series of ratchets ever.
Awful ratchet. The teeth are clunky and do not hold well. The selector switch pops out of gear. This is really bad when it lets loose as one is trying to apply force to a nut. The other ratchets in 1/4 and 3/8 of this teardrop design are just as bad.

Love it

I bought this rachet handle to complement my 1/2 inch sockets. I had bought this type of handle for my 3/8 inch set and loved. they are comfortable in my hands and fit better than the typical racket handles so I bought for 1/2 inch.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Not as good as the originals

I've owned Craftsman stuff for over 30 years.  They used to make quality stuff and warranty it. Now they make junk and expect you to get tired of returning the stuff. These ratchets are not nearly as good as the one I had for 30 years and just recently broke. My dad has a Craftsman set from the 50's that's still going strong.  I bet this one doesn't make it a year. Bring quality manufacturing back to America. P.S.  What happened to the Long Handle  1/2" drive Ratchets Craftsman used to sell.?? Craftsman seems to stop manufacturing many tools that might break and need free replacing.

Better handle than the standard model.

I like the rounded handle on this ratchet.  It's much more confortable than the standard rectangular model and allows me to apply more force without hurting my hands.  My main complaint about this model is that it uses the same gear head as the standard ratchet.  If you need a basic ratchet, just get the standard model.  If you need a ratchet for every day use, get the Thin Profile one.
