Fast and relatively simple to use as long as you can read the charts and have the correct spoke width. Great price compared to some of the $300 models sold by DT Swiss.
Spring based tension reading seems like it would become inaccurate as the tool aged.
This is one of the cheaper tensiometers on the market. It doesn't have the digital readouts of the more expensive units and probably isn't quite as accurate over the long run. For people who need to build a wheel to "exact specs", you may want to spend the money on a more expensive unit. However, for people who don't build wheels professionally, this tool should be fine.
