The whip has a 1/8" chain on it so it will work with both. But the lock ring tool is not very long or have much strength, and the nub is rounded and sheared off on mine rendering it useless. In other words money is better spent elsewhere, unless you only plan on using the lock ring tool once or twice.

Eh, I have found that rot-a-fixing will work better than any chainwhip (for reasons defined by physics).

With that, lock-ring tools really do not need to be that long, as you don't want to risk over tightening and stripping off the lock-ring threads. I personally use a PEDRO's Trixie tool for a lock-ring tool.

I have that pake tool combo and it's alright. Does the job. Nothing to write home about, really. If anything, the leverage you can get with them leaves some to be desired.
