Model/Year: SW-0

Pros: Park quality
Ease of use

Cons: None

Recommendation: The Park SW series of nipple wrenches should be in every bikers tool kit. I have them all, but you should definitely have the size that fits your bike(s). I've seen folks say that they easily strip your nipples. Just take your time and you'll be fine. Any wrench can do that if you're not careful or are dealing with rusty or parts filled with crud.

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

Cons: - only 2 sided
- easily strips nipples

Recommendation: Park makes two version of this spoke wrench, as will all sizes. The SW-0 is the 2 sided wrench where as the SW-40 is the 4 sided version. I would recommend also springing for the 4 sided to take better care of those soft nipples.

Pros: Nice feel, accurate, easy to use.

Cons: I am always grabbing the wrong color.

Recommendation: If you are truing wheels, get this one instead of the triple spoke gauge tool.

Pros: Easy to use. Excellent for truing rims.

Cons: None

Recommendation: Make sure you get the right size for you spokes. There are three sizes. If you do any bike maintenance you gotta have one of these.
