Got one second hand so looked this old review, nice! Deploy is fun but retract is pain with pliers of this tool Maybe try to carry a bit next year but doubt this will stay in closet. A bit bulky tool for options it offers.
It's an interesting one, isn't it?
While putting the pliers away isn't quite as much a PITA as I thought it would be, there's no getting away from the fact it isn't easy either.
I still think there is a good idea at the core of the Recoil, but the final design just doesn't quite cut it. Other than getting the pliers out everything else is just too hard to use easily.
