Pros: Cheap
Harden steel

Cons: None

Recommendation: i used to use off brand(cheap) ones years ago but found that they rounded off nipples on a regular basis. Ended up buying the whole set of park spoke wrenches and couldn't be happier

Model/Year: SW-1

Pros: Park quality
Easy to use
Feels great

Cons: None

Recommendation: As mentioned before, every tool kit should have all the SW sizes. Also, just take your time using these as if you're dealing with rusty or crud filled items,

Pros: Indestructible
Easy to grip
Lifetime warranty

Cons: Strips nipples easily

Recommendation: This tool is pretty straight forward. just be sure you are using the right size otherwise you will strip your nipples, and nobody likes stripped nipples.

Pros: Park Tool quality
- easy to grip
- color coded for size

Cons: - only 2 sided
- easily strips nipples

Recommendation: Park makes two version of this spoke wrench, as will all sizes. The SW-1 is the 2 sided wrench where as the SW-41 is the 4 sided version. I would recommend also springing for the 4 sided to take better care of those soft nipples.
