As far as opinions stand, a nut tool is gonna rank low on the list of "super great I love it!" scale. But, worthwhile things to know about this bad boy: it isn't gonna break if you pound on it to work your gear outta the wall and the likelihood of dropping it is significantly decresed (when used correctly) by the handy dandy leash it is attached to. The leash can be a little cumbersome--stretching it out always makes it want to return to your harness unbidden, but I do enjoy that it compacts to a short length that stays outta my way when i am climbing. Definitely a good, reliable product.
