In general, I am not a fan of the ratcheting box end wrenches. The box end is necessarily much larger than a standard box end wrench to accommodate the ratcheting mechanism. In my work world (aviation) we usually do not have the luxury of a lot of room around the fasteners we need to loosen or tighten. BUT, the flex versions of the combination wrenches with ratcheting box ends do have a very useful purpose.
This wrench can be used to speedily remove (or tighten) fasteners. Simply flip the flex head so that the wrench is 90 degrees to the fastener. Then all you need to do is flick your wrist to run a fastener in or out. Very fast. One of the tool truck companies offered a specialized ratchet to do just this at a very fancy price. The full-polish Craftsman set gives you a better alternative plus an open-end wrench at the other end. I would suggest using a conventional breaker bar to break the fastener loose to protect the ratcheting mechanisim before using the ratcheting end.
Most of the aviation world in the US is still using SAE-sized fasteners (although this is changing in some parts of the market) so my experience is with the SAE versions of this tool.

I love all my ratcheting wrenches...even these, but I think I could have done better buying the Gearwrench set w/o the lock. I played around with both in the store, and I opted for these thinking the lock would be the best route. It comes unlocked, and when unlocked...it's just to loose and flimsy. The Gearwrench brand has a tight connection, and you can virtually utilize it in 180 of 180 degrees vs like 10 on the Craftsman because of the locking mechanism. The good thing in my case was that I bought them on sale for $77.50 + tax.
Working on these old cars as a hobby let's you know just how age has caught up with you yourself as well! It is always frustrating to not quite be able to get that wrench in just the right spot.... ah, but sometimes there's a tool set on sale, at Sears, that will reach the ****** without all the pain and frustration. This 7 pc system didn't cost me that much, but the results are astounding, no big deal, I meant to do it that easy! Thanks Craftsman!

With the flex head on the wrench, it gets into hard to reach places. It also keep your knuckles intact while working the wrench by keeping your hand above the work surface.
