I have it and it`s a quality tool and makes the job really simple. However, it is expensive being 100+$ and I`d say you can live happily with out it if you are not truing wheels more often then an avarage rider.

I have one as well. If I had the choice over again I would buy the excel brand as it has adjustable torque.

It was worth the money to find out how tight spokes were supposed to be. I found the stock yamaha rims I was dealing with to be very loose. I have two decent seasons on the bike now and the rims are still perfect. A lot of that is due to the spokes being properly tensioned.
