Flex Head Spanners

Hi All

Just a question hoping someone can help me with.

I purchased the Bahco 94pce Socket & Spanner Combo Set. #S87+7.

All looks fantastic only issue is I have no idea what the Flex Head spanners are mainly used for ?

The parts I am talking about are as follows
Flex Head spanners
8-9 mm
10-11 mm
12-13 mm
14-15 mm

Can anyone can shed some light on these spanners and what they are usually used for?
Any feedback would be appreciated.

Regards
Jack

I've had similar wrenches in my tool box for about 40 years, used them maybe 2 or 3 times.

The ones with socket on them are a PITA, but the flex head boxed end can be handy at times.
