These are fine if you use them just like any tool - - -
don't ask of it to operate outside parameters more than it can realistically handle.

They're OK, not great not terrible. Definitely worth $2.00. I wouldn't use it with an impact gun/wrench.

No way for impact use, hand tool use only. Even the ones of this style that are supposedly impact rated are dangerous and have caused some bad hand injuries.

I've been using 'wobble drive' extension bars instead of universals,
great in tight spaces where a universal of any type might not fit!

I have some with 1/2" drive impact rated. Used on some suspension work
just before christmas.
