Rated 4 out of 5 by xXStevenXx Excellent tools, roller things are gimicky, holder is good.
I have owned these for a couple of years, I've built two bikes and serviced dozens more, and they are really good wrenches. The plastic roller collar things on the shafts are a neat idea, but the execution is flawed in that they are only held in place by O-rings, which not only move up and down the shaft in use, but will eventually perish and fall off. I don't miss them. The tool is fine without them and this in no way detracts from the goodness of these tools.
The holder is really good, it's designed to be mounted to a wall or bench and when it is, it makes all the difference. One minor point is that the wrenches and the holder have the wrench sizes moulded into them, which means it is all but impossible to see, at a glance, which size is which (unless you memorise the locations or can tell by looking) so as a simple solution I painted the raised numbers on the black holder in white correction fluid so now the numbers really stand out, this actually makes a whole world of difference to the ease of use of these tools, more than you'd think it would!
I've no doubt that other brands tool sets are just as good, but everyone likes a bit of Park Tool Blue dont they!?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Handbrake Works well, aesthetic finish is poor
These are the first set of ball heads that I've gotten and must say that I should have gotten them sooner. park tool has this quite well thought out with the offering of two hex heads on a single tool. Where I have no issue with the fit of the hex heads, my disappointment is in the finish of the blue handle which looks roughly made. In fact it looks incongruent with the finishing standards of their other tools. Additionally, the size of the tool is not clearly labelled on the handle. If you keep your tools on the supplied stand, you'll be fine as they are marked clearly there, but if like me you keep them in a drawer then do expect to do a bit of rummaging.

Chaves com comprimentos e medidas adequadas, o punho é ergonómico, a qualidade de construção é boa, mas o preço é muito elevado em comparação com marcas com qualidades semelhantes.

These are definitely worth the nice CRC markup. The wrenches are solid, don't flex or bend and are nice to use. A nice feeling to have such excellent tools in my toolbox. Lost a rating for the (very) cheap plastic holder.

Ignore anyone who says these wrenches are rubbish. They are brilliant! I work in a bike shop and we have this set up on the wall in the workshop and use them every day. Strong as hell and comfortable to use. If they can stand up to regular bike shop abuse, if you're looking for a good set for home maintenance, look no further!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Great tools, not so sure about the holder
As with most Park stuff, these are top quality tools. I've had mine a couple of years now & they're as good as new. I find them more comfortable to use than standard ones, and the quality means when I'm clumsy with them, it's the bolts that get rounded, not the allen keys. The only complaint I have is with the holder. Unless you mount it to a tool wall or something (which I am going to do shortly), it's a bit wobbly & rubbish, and the oversized blue handles can make it a bit awkward to get them all in place in the holder as they do tend to rotate all over the shop. Still, small complaint really, not cheap but I wouldn't be without mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Worth it
I know they are flipping expensive but its a full set small through to very large, with a snazzy case, top quality these things will not round and the ball shaped end bit is really really useful, - 9 times out of ten access is an issue and the ball shaped end helps no end plus its not a sloppy fit you can tighten up with it really well.
The plastic collar things are simply that held in place by small rubber O washers to facilitate fast turning - work fine but im not that bothered about them.
Allen keys are probably the most frequently used tool, these are a joy to use, if you're going to buy them do it now they'll last a lifetime and you'll get more use out of them but whatever you do dont get cheap allen keys - they round and you end up bodging things

Too expensive. Instead buy a set of Draper hex wrenches for £15!!
