Pros: Sturdy
Never stripped a nipple

Cons: None

Recommendation: Park offers these in multiple sizes. I have used others that didn't fit the spoke nipple as well and you have the potential to round one off. Grips well. A must for anyone that wants to keep there wheels true.

Pros: - It's Park quality
- comfotable to grip
- less likely to strip out spoke nipples
- easier to use than many other spoke wrenches
- differant tool for differant sizes

Cons: - differant tool for differant sizes

Recommendation: This is a must have tool for any rider that maintains his/her own whip. This particular model has the four sides to help prevent nipple damage and fits most quality wheel nippels. Can also be gotten in a 2 sided. Totally beats out any multi tool spoke nipple you find at the LBS. This is the size used most unless dealing with less expensive "Walmart" bikes then you want the SW-42

Pros: Better grip on spoke nipples.

Cons: None

Recommendation: Much improved over the standard spoke wrench. This is a must if you are using alloy nipples over the brass ones. Gripping the 4 sides reduces the chances of damage to the nipple.
