What is the Best Ratchet (Round 2)?

Todd's Picks

Best Performance

(Round 1 WINNER)

GearWrench 90 (Round 1)

Purchased for: $34

GearWrench 90 (Round 1)

In the previous video on ratchets, the $34 GearWrench with 90 teeth easily won the showdown. When you consider the very affordable price, it would still be my choice over all the ratchets tested this time.

Best Performance

Matco

Purchased for: $116

If it's all about performance, the Matco is expensive but excels in all categories. Although the directional switch requires slightly more effort compared to other brands, it's still a minor issue for most people.

Best Performance

Stahlwille

Purchased for: $121

Stahlwille

The Stahlwille is another expensive option, but it also performed well in every category.

Best Value

Crescent

Purchased for: $14

Crescent

The Crescent ratchet is definitely the best value option, priced at only $14. It offers great value and delivers really good performance. Although it may not compete with the top brands in terms of working arc swing, it performs exceptionally well in every other category.
