With 3 drive sizes, it’s hard to beat a deal like this. I’m sure that somebody will nitpick about where it’s made, etc. You can’t argue however, when you’re getting up to a half inch drive with the various extensions and additional wrenches.
The only thing that I find odd is that there’s no included bit driver handle. It seems strange to provide a nice selection of screwdriver bits, and then leave out a standard bit driver. All that aside, I wouldn’t avoid this deal because of it.
I really should have jumped on it, but didn’t. I have two smaller Stanley ratchet sets and my dad has one as well. I’m sure they aren’t Snap-On quality or anything, but they really don’t seem like a bad set of tools. I will say their cases are really nice, at least compared to anything I’ve seen from Craftsman. Everything latches into place. We go on vacation to a lake in Canada every year and its about 80 miles of dirt road each way. We used to take a Craftsman set along and each time we literally had to dump the case of tools to reorganize them. We took the Stanley sets a few times and there was one or two sockets that came loose.
