    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was looking for a little more comfortable ratchet that also had a little bit better grip and this Craftsman V Series Comfort Grip 3/8″ ratchet fit the bill perfectly so decided to give it a try. At 7 3/4″ inches long it’s not too long and not too short but the perfect size for about 95% of my projects and the very fine 96 tooth and short 3.75⁰ arc swing is great for tight spots and the gears feel nice and tight without any play in the head. The selector switch is slightly recessed which is great to avoid accidental flipping and has a solid feel. Overall great ratchet and glad to see quality hasn’t diminished, highly recommend.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] What can I say, it’s hard to improve on Craftsman ratchets, but they have done it. The ergonomic grip makes the task comfortable and as an added bonus once you’ve loosed that stubborn fastener, the narled thumb grips allow for speedy removal while the comfort grip handle protects precious finishes from dings and scratches, the spring loaded socket adaptor holds the socket or extension firm yet still allows for smooth changing, the thumb action for the direction is smooth and the ratchet action is tight, not sloppy like some competitors I’ve used. GREAT TOOLS, YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH ** CRAFTSMAN TOOLS **

    Ps. I still use many of my fathers Craftsman Tools from the 1970’s and 80’s even the ratchets.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Craftsman V-series 3/8 inch drive has a lifetime warranty. That says a lot about the quality and strength of this tool. The best part is the close ratio ratcheting which makes it so I can get the bolt tighter than I normally could. It allows for way more precision. Plus, it can be used in tight spaces too. It even has a ergonomic comfort grip. Ideal for any handyman and especially mechanics. My dad is a mechanic and the moment he saw and held this ratchet he was impressed.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Craftsman V series Comfort Grip Rachet is the best rachet I’ve ever used. The grip on it is really nice and makes it easy to hold. It has an enclosed head design and a 3.75° arc swing. I used this to get nuts and bolts off of my vehicle and it’s super easy to use. It’s also great to use for hard to reach places.

  5. Rick

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Received my V-series 3/8 ratchet and was very impressed with the packaging. I was eager to hold it and get into my hands. The ratchet felt solid as well as the rubberized grip that felt like a performance tool. The gears inside the ratchet head felt solidly precise in both forward and reverse.

  6. Chiefstevie

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recently bought a new bicycle for my daughter and of course it was in the box. This tool we all I needed to get it assembled and on the road in record time. It was easy to snap the sockets on and remove them quickly for each part I had to assemble. The handle length is perfect to offer the right amount of torque, but not too long that it prevents you from getting to the nuts. I do wish it had the little button on the back to remove the sockets but maybe I’m just old school. This does not affect the ease of removal though. My favorite thing about this ratchet though, is the comfort grip handle. It’s rubber texture really helps give you that extra something when it’s 100 degrees outside and you’re dripping in sweat.

  7. BrainTheToolGuy

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] First impression was a very positive one. Whole thing looks great, grip handle feels even better than it looks and all with the wonderful benefits of a sealed head. The Craftsman purported 3.75 degree arc swing seems to check out. A bit short compared to other standard 3/8” drive ratchets, but what leverage is supposedly lost in length, is gained in grip relief. Would love to see a slim line version of this series of ratchet.

  8. Dustin M

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been a Craftsman “guy” for 15+ years. I’ve seen and used multiple iterations of the ratchets, and I can safely say that this has been the most impressive unit yet. Upon seeing and feeling the ratchet, I knew already it was a quality piece. The fine teeth drive has a great feel and is very usable. MUCH nicer than the old Craftsman ratchets. This is what I would define as a premium ratchet at a more than fair price point. I plan to convert all of my ratchets to this new type. I like the sealed design as well, won’t get gunked up when exposed to oil, hydraulic fluid, trans fluid, etc. I have been wrenching on cars (and racing) for well over 2 decades now, and I feel strongly enough about this ratchets, that I have recommended them to my friends/family. I’m very happy with the quality, design, and comfort – can’t wait to see what else SBD can do with the Craftsman brand!

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first comfort grip ratchet and I was worried that it would get slippery when greasy and just be a pain to use, but I love this ratchet. It feels so good in my hand. No more cut up palms from the ones that grab your skin and rip it apart. The enclosed head and easy to move lever makes it so simple to reverse directions when you reach down to break a bolt loose, but have it in drive instead of reverse. Having this ratchet makes me feel like a king! I used it along with another ratchet to work on my engine and I am glad to have this one in my tool box! No one will get to borrow this one.

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] V-Series™ 3/8 Comfort Grip Ratchet is an awesome tool. It is easy to grip and hold the handle. It is high quality and durable . It has a Full Lifetime Warranty . I like the head design. . I like the long handle , to reach hard to reach places.

  11. Ringle223

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great little socket wrench it has a great grip on it and the sockets just really click into place but one huge draw back that I have with the tool is it lacks a lot of leverage for the type of tool it is. maybe a longer handle on it would make it even better but for now I’m using it as a travel one

  12. Matt

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very comfortable ratchet. I liked the short arc of swing to get another bite. The handle could be a little longer to get more leverage but overall a good tool. I would definitely recommend if you have a hard time gripping the regular metal ratchets.

  13. Clark

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I like the grip on the new V series ratchet and I was able to get in to some really tight places with the 3.75 degree swing it feels really well built I think it will last a long time it’s been really strong so far

  14. Ken H

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Always pleased with the quality and craftmanship of Craftsman tools. Each product is well designed and made, very durable and the company stands behind its products. As usual, this Rachet did not disappoint.

  15. Lucky_4eva_24

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This Ratchet is a great addition to my tools! The comfort grip is very nice, no slipping of my hands they grip nicely, and its a soft grip. The fine tooth mechanism is the best thing about this ratchet, it is close and not spaced apart, its a tight grip with no slipping off the sockets. It glides smoothly, and not loosely. The long handle is great for hard to reach places that my hands couldn’t normally get to easily. This ratchet is very durable, well made, and tough there is no doubt that it will last many many projects and years.

  16. Mat M

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I first received the ratchet, I was impressed by the looks of it. After pulling it out of the package, it was very comfortable in my hand. I immediately noticed the fine-toothed ratcheting mechanism. I then put it straight to work tearing down an old VW Beetle engine. The ratchet worked extremely well. Having the fine-toothed mechanism gave me lots of control while removing some stubborn bolts and nuts. I wouldn’t mind having a couple other size handle lengths and in different drive sizes.

  17. Marie801

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My first impression of this wrench is how comfortable the handle is. Having that padding to reduce the wear and tear on your hands is a good feature of this wrench. The length is perfect. Not to long and not to short. I have had no trouble breaking bolt loose with this heavy duty wrench. Only time will tell how durable it ends up being but so far I am impressed and don’t foresee any issues with it.
