Carbonlite Tools?

Anybody tried these yet? Im putting together another truck set and a little less weight is always a good thing. Price is good comparing to Mac or Snap-On. USA made but wanted to hear first hand from someone who has some first.

CarbonLite Tools

Thanks

Re: Carbonlite Tools?

Cool idea but no thanks

Yeah I'm sure they are light but also waaaaaay to $$$ and what if you needed to double wrench? I'm sure that wouldn't be good for the carbon fiber.

Price isn't bad at all for good tools. Compare a 10 piece set from Snap-On at over $400.00.

Snap-on doesn't have a double boxed set with ratchet though.
MAC is also same price league.

Re: Carbonlite Tools?

Your right If you use wrenches seriously there is a reason you buy Snap-on , Mac, Matco ect. You get what you pay for. The video showing use shows some fool pushing on wrench, bad practice. Looks like they might break easily. For those of you that replaced your FJ s front bumper do you remember how tight those bolts on each side of cross bar were there is no way those Ronco wrenches would work.

Re: Carbonlite Tools?

It's hard to tell from the pics/description if they are serious quality or just a gimicky Harbour Freight'ish new fad for style. "Ronco" was the word I was looking for. Thanks Pop!
I can't tell though. They might actually be really nice.

Those would be nice for a Pilot's tool bag, where weight is a huge factor.
