I now have several of these spoke wrenches. I bought the first maybe 25 years ago, to true a wheel. Then I built a wheelset to replace that wheel and, in due course, many other wheelsets. This little wrench is perfect for the job.
I recently had a spoke break while I was out on a ride. I happened to have a spoke wrench with me, so was able to true the wheel enough to complete the ride (the tire was jammed hard against the chainstay before truing). So when I got home I checked to make sure I had spoke wrenches in every tool roll on every bike. Eight bucks and 14g is a bargain for a tool that can save a ride!
The Park Tool Spoke Wrench is a great little tool, assuming you get the correct size for your spokes. Since there are three different sizes, there is a very high chance that there is one for your spokes. It fits the spokes very well. The shape makes it easy to get onto the spoke nipple and also makes it easy to grasp and comfortable in your grip. So even if the spokes are tight and difficult to turn, this tool makes it a simple task to true your wheels.
I have another 4 way Park spoke wrench and another brand of 4 way also. This wrench fits the tightest of them all. Spoke nipples will never get rounded with a bit of light oil on the threads along with this wrench.
This wrench might cost a couple bucks more than other brand, but you can't go wrong with a classic. This is a must buy, real cyclists true their own wheels!!! OK...I am exaggerating..sorry...but if you think about truing your own wheels, buy this one.
