Does it click when you get to the torque number? Do you think it is basically accurate? What is the cost? Does it pass the Yamakaze test?

I think it works just fine. Mine is set to 48 inch Lbs from the factory. I hate guessing when I'm doing maintenance and the old tone method is not very reliable if you select a spoke that is too tight already or too loose. Now I know my torque is as Taffy put's it "Spot On". It does click when it reaches the proper torque, The head also pivots so that there is NO Misunderstanding that you've reached the right Torque.
It was a little on the expensive side...I negotiated mine down to $144.00 with shipping.
I figure I'll get my money's worth out of it within a year by not having to replace as many broken spokes on both my bikes. Plus I've already had some friends com over to use it. It will make wheel lacing alot easier and more accurate.
