The example I handled, felt tinny . OK tool , but just didn’t fill me with the same confidence as a Surge , or Supertool .

Best Regards,

Chris
Well, then again, it’s only the size of a PST. :dunno:

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Took some measurements with digital caliper of handle thickness

Rebar and PST are .040 inches or 1.06 mm thick
OG ST and ST300 are .047 in. 1.20 mm thick

Hmm yes, makes sense, moment of inertia proportional to cross-sectional area AND distance of portions of said area from neutral line or torque axis mumble mumble.... ;)

Cheers!
