    Slim feel, long handle with fine action

    Posted by Rodney Brenneman on Oct 5th 2018

    This ratchet has a nice slim feel compared with others I've owned, which I like. The ratchet action is very fine with minimal 'wobble'. Release is firm enough not to accidentally push but easy to use. Reversing lever is easy to use but firm enough not to bump accidentally. Great ratchet!

    Must-have ratchet for mechanics.

    Posted by Schäfer on Mar 29th 2018

    I bought the 3/8" Wera Zyklops Metal ratchet about a month ago and put it to the test. I've used it almost every day in the shop under very harsh conditions. This is one tough tool. I figured since German engineering is top notch, I'd put this tool through it's paces and abuse it a little and it exceeded my expectations.

    Aside from it's superb durability, it performs excellent. The matte finish feels great to the touch and holds up great as far as I can tell. It's a very thin ratchet with a low profile and narrow head which makes it great for working in cramped engine bays. The handle swells near the bottom in width and profile, making it very comfortable to use. It's 72 teeth make loosening fasteners in tight spots a breeze. The mechanism has very little back-drag, so it will still ratchet even on loosened bolts. The anvil holds sockets very tight, so there is little wobble.

    The lever works great, it never sticks and it moves between forward and reverse very easily - it's the smoothest lever I've used. It's also shaped like Wera's logo which is a nice detail, it shows their dedication to their product and attention to design. It also make operating the lever easier when you try to thumb it with oily hands. It's recessed so you won't accidentally reverse it while working on a car.

    The only drawback I could see is the laser-etched writing as opposed to the engraved markings typically used for American tools. But the writing hasn't worn or faded as of yet.

    As usual with Wera products this works well, and feels great in your hands. It's become my go to 3/8". I bought the Zyklop swivel head too, but I like this better for easy to reach every day tasks.

    Best Ergonomics

    Posted by Dan D on Nov 26th 2017

    I own both the 1/4" & 3/8" drives of this tool. The ratchet feels fantastic in the hand. I much prefer the satin finish over shinny chrome. All metal construction is a plus, no plastic handles to wear out, crack or look crappy. My only complaint is that these are not rebuildable.

    Impressive build and function

    Posted by Stuart T on Jul 18th 2017

    I was really impressed with the quality and feel of this ratchet. Certainly much more comfortable than that of a typical bulky handle. The finish is more of a matte than a shiny chrome, which helps reduce glare. Light, yet durable.

    Very impressed

    This ratchet has a great feel. Thinner and longer than most ratchets with a high engagement.

    Almost perfect...

    Posted by Kristina on Mar 16th 2016

    Much thinner than your average 3/8 ratchet which is why I purchased it. I'm a small lady so the thin handle fits well in my hand, and the extra length gives me just a bit more leverage. Minus one star because I sometimes have to fiddle with it to get the switch to move.
