I'm looking for a DT style spoke wrench at a Park price. The Park is good but I like the 4 sided semi-box style. The Spokey is also good but the actual metal portion is relatively small and the plastic flexes a bit at high tension. Does anyone know of a good metal semi-box style spoke wrench? I'm thinking about the new Pedros. Has anyone used it?

And while we're on the subject of spoke wrenches, does anyone know where I can get a Spline Drive Pro spoke tool? I have a set of nips but there is no way I'm going to build with that little trail tool.

The Pedros works well. Only use for those tough to move nipples though. I still prefer my Park.

Thanks Shiggy, that's good enough for me. I'll get the LBS to order me one. How would you compare the open end of the Pedros to the Park?

Fit is about the same but it is easier to get the Park on because of the beveled opening. I can build a wheel much quicker with the Park.
