One Ball's new driver ratcheting tool that's great for bringing with you while riding because of its fold-up design. The X-Wing design holds four bits for different sized bindings and offers more torque than a traditional handle.
- 4 Bits
It’s about a 1.2 cm thick, 7.5 cm in length when folded, and 12.5 cm long at extension without the bit.
It Comes with (at least mine did) two #3 and one #1 Phillips head and one #6 flat head bits that are stored in pairs in each handle. I feel it should've came with anther flat head or another intermediate size P.H. bit.
Nothing is magnetized, so when you open a handle to grab a bit, the other will fall out. This is especially annoying when you are on the slopes and need to tweak your gear, if you’re not careful the bit will in fall in the snow and can be a pain to find. Gloves don’t make it any easier and personally, I’d rather not have to pull off my gloves if I don’t have to.
Not to mention, in order to use the T-handle, you’ll have to pull out all the bits and either hold on to them or put them in your pocket, which I find annoying to find when I’m in full gear on the mountain. The arms open about 55 deg, and are about 2.5cm long.
The ratchet is okay, feels like an off-brand parts store ratchet and tends to jump out of gear in while in use. But it gets the job done. Also, it doesn’t “lock” at extension, so it tends to fold in use.
I wouldn’t buy it again for myself or a friend. I’m looking to buy a different tool.
