Just got one from Walmart today! It seems to be perfect except for the plier tips get caught on the inside tools when closing. It doesn’t seem to cause much of an issue besides scrape it a bit. Otherwise it seems to be a perfect backup multitool.

My Collection: Rebar, Rev, Signal, Swisschamp, EvoS557, SOG PowerAccess :multi:
I ask a lot of questions ???

Looks like the HX branded one has some cutouts in the scales to make it lighter.

Picked up one of these based on the (resonably) glowing reviews.  I underestand it is a sub 40 dollar tool, so my expectations were based on that.

Straight out of the box the main blade (not the serrated one) was bent, so it was just about impossible to open.  In an attempt to straighten it, it broke.  Yes, I broke the bade with my hands...  To be fair it cracked through the opening hole, which is the weakest area.  Must be cast, or hardened too much (not correctly tempered?)

Also, the scissors did not work, as the spring portion would slip off the moving side when, thus requiring a manual reset.  This happened every time. 

General fit and finish is mediocre, compared to a 30 dollar gerber suspension nxt (picked that up last week) which may be the best value multi tool I have ever handled.

I decided to follow maxlvledc's lead and convert it to a "multi knife"

I swapped the serrated blade in the slot the regular blade was in, kept the saw on the opposite side.  I plan to put the pocket clip (which was also improperly bent out of the box) onto the saw side as I am right handed and would like the serrated blade to fall under my thumb when removing the knife from my right front pocket.

The 3 tools (scissors, flat driver and cap lifter) fit in the pliers slot quite well, however they will need to be slightly re-profiled to work as slip joint tools.  I will post some pics when I get a chance to grind them.  I bent the scissor spring flat and it works correctly now.  Just had to shuffle the washers and all 3 of the tools fit nicely where the pliers head once was.

Overall I am quite happy with this tool, although it remains to be seen how durable the cast bit driver is.  A forged/machined bit driver would be nice, and a welcome upgrade to the wave/charge/surge series.  I know there are some 3d printed parts out there, not sure how I feel about them.  I will add some pics when I get home.

Still, way better than the gerber armbar, which was a total disappointment due to its non-locking driver.

Which variation did you get, jdindadell,  I've actually been quite impressed with the Ozark Trail version.
Ps,  I like my Gerber too.  It's the best value on multitools that I have.

Addicted to sharp pointy things.

Mine is a Ozark Trail Multiforce that I got directly from Walmart.

The quality and weight (lack of) on the Gerber NXT was quite surprising to me.  It is a bit bulky but for the price it is very well finished.

I may re-profile the plier head to use it with a spare set of rebar handles that I have left over from an old wave project.  The pivots that interface with the handles need to be flatter, and the pivot enlarged slightly.  The plier head seems to be the best made part of the tool.
