ICON by Harbor Freight

Been looking at thinking about trying some of the new Icon Professional line sold by Harbor Freight Tools. I don't like where they are made, but I figured they're worth a try. My opinion of most Harbor Freight tools is that they're good as backups, or building kits, or that one tool you're gonna probably use no more than once in your lifetime, but that's about it. There is the Snap On, Mac, and Matco trucks; but most Proto and S&K has to be specially ordered. I cannot buy either locally. While some industrial supply stores carry odd assortments of the lines, it's usually "special order" at an inflated price. I'm especially looking at the ratchets.
These are pretty moderately priced (in line with what the USA-made Craftsman tools used to be) and supposedly designed to compete with Snap On.
