This hammer is an excellent tool for both the beginner and pro alike. Some may feel as if hammers are a tool of the past
but "when you need em, you need em" It reduces wrist strain, fatigue with it's anti-vibe handle. I was bit skeptic myself
until I purchased it and used it, it is a great hammer. My only peeve with it is that it should have a magnetic nail holder
on the head. Maybe Stanley will work on that, then it will be perfect. I have used many other brands of hammers, and this
brand and model holds its ground against the other so called leading brands.
I like the fact that it has a solid head and handle, the striking head itself is wide but not bulky.The handle has a comfortable
grip, it is formed to fit your hand, not your hand to fit the handle.
I would strongly recommend this hammer to anyone who uses a hammer, especially one who uses a hammer as a
tool required to do their job. Either way in my opinion, this is a must have tool for any tool box or bag.
