I bought two of these. I really liked the knurled post design so I can finger tighten lugs before moving on to using the wider part of the wrench. I'm a bit ambivalent about the magnetic aspect. The biggest disappointment for me is that both of the wrenches were oversized. There is a fair amount of slop/play when I put it on a lug nut. I have a Sonor Prolite drum kit and a Tama G-Bubinga Snare, as well as a Roland e-kit and hardware, as well as some Pearl and Tama hardware. It was lose on everything, and even slipped outright on the slightly smaller Tama lug nuts that are part of the strainer butt assembly. The hardware and snare drums are all I put any sort of meaningful torque on and I don't trust using them on that because I'm afraid I'll round off all my lug nut heads. The few lug nuts I did use it on (I removed the batter side head with them), the lug nuts got stuck in the key and were hard to remove, and it wasn't solely because of the magnetic part, they got lodged in the key because it was too sloppy. Evans make great drum heads and I'll continue to buy them as I think they're a great product. I just can't believe they'd get something as simple as this so wrong. The weight, finish and feel in the hand is great. However, two out of the two I bought were equally oversized. A shame. On a side note, I did also buy a drill bit adapter key but haven't used it yet. I did put it on by hand to see if it had similar slop. It seemed to have a normal amount of play. Once I use it properly I'll write a review for that. I would not recommend these to anyone until they tighten up their specs.
