Strengths:    Works

Weaknesses:    Apparently prone to breaking...

Bottom Line:   
Feels a little silly to write a review for such a basic tool, but I have read that these are essentially 'single-use' and tend to break. Last time my LBS replaced a spoke they broke theirs and I had to wait a week for them to get a replacement - hence buying my own instead! I've used it once after trying and failing to improvise a tool to do the job. It's still fine; I reckon the trick is to secure the tool with the quick release or axle nut (as instructed on the packet) and use a quality shifter with a long handle so you can apply plenty of leverage without straining. Pricey for what it is, but if you have an old Suntour freehub you don't have much choice...
