Rated 4 out of 5 by Call Nice bit o kit
Very nice and easy to use
very good price when compared with buying separate tools for the spokes.
is abit cheapo but will not bust that quick and does a very good home job.

This is a nice little product, the colour marks make using it easy with minimal fiddling. the size is also perfect as there is enough room for fingers and thumb to give good purchase when tightening spokes.

To make it perfect this key really needs 1 or 2 mm of 0.1mm wider shank ramp as "introduction" so that it can be slid onto older - or more maligned used nipples.
I found that with new brass nipples the super tight fit meant that I mis-shaped a few edges, and had to resort to my old spoke key to adjust some nipples.
With old, used brass nipples which had no visible swarf I found I had to expell as much effort to put the key on accurately as I did to true the wheel.
I have some old alloy nipples here, and they are a more relaxed fit, maybe it is my nipples that are too big ;-(.
It is good, but I would prefer a tool that is easier to initially engage. Maybe I am nitpicking too much, it is a good price and will last a long time for sure.

The width at the base makes it very easy to turn the nipples in or out, and it seems to hold on, doesnt drop off when let go.
