Icon tools

Has anyone else picked up Harbor Freight's newest, premium line of tools named Icon? I bought a long-handled 3/8 ratchet last weekend and put it to use yesterday for the first time. Its got a 90 tooth mechanism and seems just a smooth as my Snapon ratchet. Price was very reasonable at $50, but the harbor freight coupons do not work on this line of tools.

Lives in garage:

2004 Red Jeep TJ "X", big tires, suspension, stereo delete, dent in cowl.


1982 Red Jeep Scrambler, small block chevy on 35's.

No, Kerrville, about 20 miles away. About a block south is a Hobby Lobby under construction and there's another chicken fast food under construction (like we needed another one of those .) The area is growing and unemployment is so low service industries (motels, food, etc.) are having a difficult time finding employees.)

Following. I'd be curious how the Icon holds up when you throw a badass breaker bar on it and overload the living sh!t out of it. Not that I use my tools like that....
