Interesting. How does it feel, from the videos it looks like it has a finer ratchet mechanism than the snap on.
it felt really similar to this one: https://shop.snapon.com/product/Com...tion-Soft-Grip-Screwdriver-(Green)/SGDMRCE44G

The backlash is really good, the switch goes the right way (turn it clockwise to set it to tighten mode), which a lot of cheaper drivers don't do. The knurling is pretty aggressive which I'm a fan of, it's basically a sealed unit so no servicing it which is a bummer.

overall if you don't already have a high end driver it's for sure worth the $$, but if you don't give a shit about tools or have every other high end driver already (me :o).... meh.

I'm not familiar with the soft grip Snap On's, all of mine are the old school ones which I love.

What's the big deal with the ratcheting screwdrivers? Why not use a cheap power one?
