Well that makes me feel better I was afraid this was just me being set in my ways and afraid of change, somehow they just felt clumsy to me. The Gear wrench I really like but not the first design I got, that was the one with the ratchet end lying flat to the handle. Since there was no switching mechanism I guess they had to be flat so they could be turned over for reverse but that meant the wrench had to lay flat against whatever was being worked on. Not surprisingly that type didn't last long and now the set I have is the flex type and I would probably shoot someone for tying to take them from me!
