Here’s the last of GearWrench’s SEMA releases: some new cushion-grip ratchets. I don’t know if you can see it clearly on the photo above, but I like the fact that the label on the directon switch says “on” and “off.” It’ll save you from checking each time you pick it up.
As some readers have commented regarding “soft-grip” tools in general, they do tend to get dirty and stay dirty. They also tend to prevent you from sticking a pipe on the end of the ratchet, which is a good thing in general, but bad if you need to do it. Then again, comfort is comfort.
What say y’all?
