Must admit that the Halford's set I had for Christmas have a lovely heft/feel to them.
And do the job.
Normally, resetting a ring half a turn isn't an issue but can't say these don't make it easier
Little bit larger in diameter to a normal ring or socket so access in tight places could be an issue but so far so good.

Probably be very convinced the first time I get one of those bolts that have to be wound out all the way but you can only move the spanner 1/4 turn.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
