I know they have a bad reputation on here but, is this manufactured by the same company as the one that Sabre Cycle sells?
I'm guessing it probably is.

That is not the case. The sourcing on this product is unique to me.

funny as hell...sabre and randakks selling cheap wrenches ...looks like something that comes with a put together yourself toy from china

Facts:

1. My sourcing for this product is not the same as "that other company."

2. My sourcing is not China.

That may be your fair assessment. I'm not sure if you have purchased and used the tool yourself.

In any case, many of these have been sold without complaint. Many customers (and me) find it helpful in avoiding hassle, time and expense necessary to remove the radiator and replace the hoses, etc. for some maintenance tasks.

YMMV

It is fair to say that if one has not used the tool then it is not fair to judge it. One persons opinion of anything does not make up the opinion of everyone. Look at customer reviews of just about any product online and you will see what I mean.

bronko is a very pro randakks product pusher here....as he posted ...and has used several of your kits on his bike ...he always pushes your products to others here ...he also has the right to post his opinion on this product without being made to feel he did something wrong....this was a very old post and forgotten....you bought it back up.....

this forum has proved your not right on everything.....this forum gets to the bottom line on things ...not except things that are more push than real.....so things get down to the nitty gritty here sometimes thick skin is required....

All correct.

I am not "anti" anyone. I fiercely defend my customers who I dearly value.

I do think I am "in bounds" to comment whenever my products are reviewed online ...whenever I become aware. Especially, when incorrect speculation is posted.

As a secondary matter, I believe the best way to help any vendor improve their products is to make suggestions directly to the vendor.

Okay since you are here and reading. Try revising the wrench so it isn't a knuckle buster as described. Oh you might want help your valued customers to resell the products they bought from you instead of threatening to sue. If it's true that is your habit. Thanks for asking.
