Carbon fiber wrenches!?!



[url]http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/news/auto-blog/carbon-fiber-combination-wrenches-1399494619??src=rss[/url]

Let's see:
1) Huge head area = clearance issues
2) Expensive, and this from a guy with a top box and roll-away full of Snap-On jewelry
3) Supposed to wear gloves to prevent carbon splinters
4) Can't use a cheater bar to increase leverage

Light, yeah, but I can't remember a time when even my scrawny arms were exhausted from swinging a wrench all day

Shark jumping, anyone?

You are only supposed to use them on carbon bolts. Steel bolts steel wrench. Carbon bolts carbon wrench it's obvious.

Oh great, now I have to think about getting bamboo or titanium wrenches if I expand the stable.

Fiber weave layout is a critical factor in the feel of CF wrenches. This is why I'll buy Colnago rather than some generic Taiwanese.
