How does the Shimano Dura-Ace Track TL-SR22 Lockring/Chainwhip Tool rate?
 
Looking for something to use which will last and not break the bank OR MY Knuckles.

Saw the Shimano TL-SR-22 for about $45 and seems to fill the job for cog/lock removal.

I have seen some $15 and $120 tools but this seemed to be a
prudent investment, any thoughts?

I have the Park Tool chain wip cog/lock removal tool. It works really well. The key is to have a long enough handle to get leverage to remove the cogs.

the Shimano tool is good. I have one. I use it. I like it.

I use this one... http://road.cc/content/review/24522-...-lockring-tool

It is a beast... IMO the best chainwhip around. I went to this one after bending the shaft and snapping the chain on a cheaper chainwhip while trying to get sprockets off after doing standing starts. No such issues with the SR22! :)

It's not cheap, but this is the last chainwhip you will ever have to buy.

Thanks, My original post has been corrected as I typed SR20 and should have been the SR22, same as yours

FWIW I have the SR-18 Park Tool chain whip. I've broken two of them (mine and another fellow's at the track who I gave $20 for his trouble). The chain comes off the tool at the first rivet. I drilled mine out and put in a bolt instead of a rivet and it works great now. I use the HCW-17 for my lockrings. Not sure if you're talking about the same thing.

I use the SR-1 on my road bike. Works fine, but road bikes don't have their cassette lockrings on as tight as a track cog.

I replaced the chain on my Park whip 5 years ago. I now use a stronger KMC chain. I used Master Links to affix it to the tool.

I'm pretty sure the chain on the Shimano SR-22 is Izumi. :)
