    Icetoolz spoke wrench?

    I have some wheels in need of truing and wanted to give it a go myself. I was shopping for spoke wrenches and just in case some of my other bikes had problems I wanted a wrench that could do it all. Found this on eBay but not sure how the quality is.

    Should this be good enough for quite a while or would I be better off buying multiple park tools wrenches? Anyone use this often that can vouch for its quality?

    That will do a wonderful job of rounding your nipples.
    I use the three way spoke wrench from Park.
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.

    My recommendation is for a wrench that will hold all 4 corners of the nipples (4 sided spoke wrench) either from Park or Spokey (my favorite). Get the correct size wrench for each nipple size you plan to work on. Each wrench needs to fit each nipple snugly. Is that a word? My computer thinks it is. Snugly, so you don't round off any corners.
