First, I would like to say that I do not use torque wrenches in my everyday life, but from I gather from the design and construction of the Tacklife torque wrench, it is a quality item. The steel feels hard and well crafted. The metal is smooth and no shipping is apparent. The handle has a chrome coating with anti-rust and anti slip. The head is chrome vanadium steel that has been heat treated for hardness. Overall, after several test and using the item 3-4 I find the quality of the item to be excellent.
