While working on cars is not my profession, it is a hobby that I give a large percentage of my time. I've come to realize that a 3/8" ratchet is by a long shot, the most used tool in my chest. Obviously, having the right tool for the job is always #1, and I have many ratchets in many sizes - but I was on the lookout for "the one" that I could reach for first, that would allow me to use it in more instances than the ones I have. I have always had craftsman ratchets as I've always bought craftsman tool sets - and quickly learned their ratchets under normal use are very poorly made and break often. I have harbor freight, Tekton, Kobalt, Dewalt, Wright Tool and even a Snap-On ratchet in 3/8 - none of which met my needs: a small head to fit in many places, a round comfortable handle, and solid socket retention mechanism, a short throw, and a slightly longer than normal handle for better torque.
This ratchet has met every single one of my requirements, and absolutely blew me away with the quality but more importantly - the utility. I can use this ratchet for more tasks than any other ratchet I own - which means less time finding the right tool, and more time doing what I enjoy. I'd recommend this ratchet to anyone with even a basic set of sockets - it will make your experience that much better.
On the down side... Others have mentioned the quick release does not positively engage all sockets. I can say this is true for me too. I have a compact Snap On universal I frequently use. The quick release does not engage that. It also does not engage some of my SK sockets, though most are fine. When it doesn't positively engage, it does still hold the socket as if it were non quick release, but that defeats the point of having QR in the first place. As I said, I have quite a few other ratchets (all but one are QR,) and none of the other have this issue, so I'm going to say it's a problem with the ratchet, not my sockets. Although the finish is very nice to look at, it doesn't stay as pretty for long after use and banging around with other tools. The non serviceable mechanism worries me some. I have no reason to think it won't last a lifetime, but that does mean you have to send the tool in for service if there's a problem rather than just having a new mechanism sent to you.
Even with the negatives I mentioned, it's so comfortable for me to use that it's the one I look for when I open my ratchet drawer.
