    Pedros spoke wrench

    Has anybody used it, and better yet, formed an opinion on it? Im thinking about buying it. IM not talking about the multi wrench, im talking about http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...goods&n=507846
    that one.
    I like my Park a lot, its really fast and east to use. But i would like the 4 sided engagement as an added protection against rounded nipples. THe pedros seems to have both options. Plus its fairly cheap

    I love it, but then most most of the wheels I build are 20" 48h, and the Pedro is pretty much the only one that'll fit between the spokes.

    I love the one I use at the shop. Of course I'm the only one who does. <shrug>

    Alright thanks. I went ahead and ordered it. I just find that if im truing an old wheel which has stubborn nipples, that its easy to round them out with the park. Hopefully the 4 sided thing will help this out a bit.

    Well i got the spoke in the mail today. I must say, it is a nice wrench! The 4 sided mechanism allowed me to have a good grip on even partially rounded out nipples. Recommended to all, plus its not terribly expensive.
