This ratchet exceeds expectations especially smaller teeth at 88 teeth but yet I can break lug nuts loose where others would break. I work on heavy equipment and by war the best ratchet in the smallest places I have ever used so rugged and tough for what I put them through hands down the best!!!

I've had this ratchet for about a month and it's great I've used it in all kinds of jobs from torquing on a head bolt to getting stubborn timing cover bolts out on front wheel drives, it's tough feels great and can flex and lock right where you need it too, I'm probably gonna get it in 1/4 and 1/2 to it's a great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ToyotaTechy Great ratchet only one little set back
This ratchet is a great tool, operates very smoothly, I love the fact that I am able to lock in the angle of the ratchet head. Its for sure my go to ratchet and I have just about every professional top name brand ratchet in my box. Of course the one thing I love about this tool appears to be its only set back. The screw that holds the ratcheting head to the handle section of the tool is held on by a screw that over time works its way out and requires you to tighten it back up. This flaw seems to be very common across the board for all the top brands who sell this style ratchet, but of the top brands who sell this style ratchet, Matco by far seems to have the higher quality tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Greggo Great When Works
I agree with the other reviews, that this ratchet is awesome but when it works! I am a tech by trade, so I use this daily. However in the year and a half that I have had it I will be receiving my third one. I treat my tools fairly and do not use them as hammers or use a cheater bar on them. The ratchet/pawl in the head strips and there you are with an expensive paper weight both times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bdbello Best Ratchet Ever!!!
My box holds many many ratchets, but this is by far my favorite ratchet out of all the rest, and the one I go to grab 90% of the time. The 88 teeth make working in tight spaces much easier, and has the smoothest motion I've ever felt. The flex head feature is also great, especially since it locks. To top it all off, the grip feels fantastic in my hands and doesn't beat them up like the signature tear drop ratchets from other brands.... Definitely would recommend this ratchet to anybody, DIYer or tech!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MISTERDIEABETIC Best Ratchet I've Every Owned
I bought this ratchet about 6 months ago and it is by far the best I've ever owned. I use it every single day, and I usually have to go searching for it because every one else in the shop uses it too. The flex head has come in handy more times that I can remember. My boss traded in his flex head snap on ratchet for one of these, and another mechanic bought one yesterday. I love these ratchets so much that I went and bought the 1/4" drive orange flex head also!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tberryman6 Awesome!
In my opinion Matco ratchets are the best ratchets on the market. I use this ratchet everyday all day long, and it has never missed a beat. I would say that it is a must have for any tool box, but mine never stays in my tool box it is always in my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brian21921 Overall Best Rachet I've Ever Used
I was in need of a new 3/8 flex head. I was very interested in this product. When the Matco truck showed up at work and I was able to see and feel the ratchet for myself I was thoroughly impressed. The comfort grip is very natural feeling and fills out the hand nicely. The locking mechanism for the flex head comes in handy on certain jobs where you need to lock in a certain angle and don't want the ratchet handle moving out of place when you apply pressure. The head is very slim and a breeze to get into tight spots and the 88 teeth make the swing arc very small, and the mechanism is exceptionally smooth. I would recommend this product to anyone, well worth the money spent.
