Not a daily driver
The finish on these ratchets is top notch. The action is superb and spins very easily. The heavier handle adds a nice balanced feel, for whatever that's worth. The button release action is silky smooth. They really are eye catching, just machined and tooled beautifully. For me they are the perfect secondary/back-up ratchets for those occasions when I need the fine tooth gears or the slightly thinner head profile. I say secondary/backup because for me the ergonomic short, very flat, heavy and wide handle design was not very ergonomic at all. The short handle makes for less torque and more strength that you must use and the thin rectangular-ish shape grew old fast. I found in daily use that they are fatiguing and hard on my hands, almost painful in higher torque situations. In certain cases these fine tooth gears are nice to be sure, but I find that for extended use in harsh environments that the tried and true, extra strength and durability of the 36 tooth (10 degree) long and round handle designs are much better as my primary. Not trying to imply that somebody shouldn't buy these ratchets. Look in any professional mechanics box and you'll find a variety of ratchets and drivers for a myriad of situations. Just saying that for me they found a specific place in my box, though it wasn't as my daily driver. Also check out the Craftsman pro line # 44813, 44814, etc. for a stronger, ergonomic, longer handled, daily/professional use alternative, (Dubbed " The best performing ratchet we've ever offered!") .

3/8 Thin Ratchet

This ratchet is definitely a good upgrade from the ratchet sold in the small socket sets. Not only is it an inch longer but the full polish and rounded handle give it a great fit in the hand. The fine tooth action is noticeably improved as well as the decreased wobble in the drive head. Just don't let it wander off with anyone else!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Highest quality ratchet period. NO SORE PALMS!

This ratchet just feels comfortable in your hand, even after a whole day of cranking bolts and nuts tight and loose, still my hand dont fatigue as it used to with my classic craftsman 3/8" drive ratchet. also i might add that the gearing is way more fine toothed than my old one too. It is sooo smooth.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent grip

Love the low profile of this ratchet, allows you to get in tighter areas. Still feels substantial in your hand, not flimsy like other low profile ratchets I've tried in the past.Highly recommend.

Love the feel of this Ratchet

Bought 5 of these and have them in every socket kit for special projects. that's the way my tools are organized. I have a big grip and are known to put a lot of grunt into what I do. These fit my grip and they arn't cheesy.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have this Ratchet as well as the 1/4" & 1/2" Thin Profile Ratchets. I am very pleased with them, they feel so much better in your hands compared to the entry level Raised Profile ratchets - you will wonder why you ever settled for anything less! The 60 Tooth ratcheting action gives you a much shorter turning radius which is a great plus. This style of Ratchet does NOT hurt your hand like the standard ratchet can over a day's use, cleans up easily and of course has the Craftsman Lifetime Warranty if you ever need it. I would highly recommend!

Wanted U.S.A = this one is made in Taiwan

Smooth action and really a nice design, just thought I could get one of the last domestics...no luck. I will say without dropping large cash for the finer tooth units, these really are huge step ahead of a standard Craftsman ratchet.

Worth the money

A definite step up from the standard ratchet. You press the back in to release the socket so it does an exceptional job of holding on the sockets and extensions. Even though it's thin and fits in more places, I definitely would not just purchase it for it's thin profile but instead for the the feel and apparent quality.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Must have

This ratchet is awesome.  Feels good in your hand, and is very quick to hit the next tooth.  I figure this ratchet will be passed on to other family members.  It is very clean, easy to use and great.  It is worth the upgrade from the regular ratchets for sure and I really think this should be the new entry level ratchet.  It is so comfortable to use and the lower arc setting is great for tight spots where you can't move the ratchet too much.  Put these on your gift list, s you will not be disappointed with this ratchet.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
