Works as advertised

Not much to say, this tool will do the job it was designed to do. If I had any complaints it would be the price, seems a bit high for this tool.

good tool to have

I am no pro, but i have built plenty of wheels. i have worked as a technician in various fields and using tension meters is no way to make yourself good, but it is good to have to go to the next level. you have to understand that not all components are made equally or even identical parts are made equally, but usuing tension meters helps dial in things when you are close to getting things well done.
once you understand how to build wheels and how to dial them in by hand, this tool will help you find problem spots, confirm your work, or dial in things all of which is good habbits.
this is a tool to help measure spoke tension, not tell you how many newton meters the spoke is tensioned to to the .001.
I recommend for people who want to be more precise, not to become precise.

Pros: easy to use
inexpensive compared to competitors


Cons: kinda cumbersome sometimes
sometimes hard to read
not the most accurate (but not what it is meant to be)
can see this getting damaged easily if not taken care of
