    Decent balance. Good swing, March 27, 2008

    In a way I feel weird reviewing a hammer, afterall it is a hammer! However, I thought I would put my 2 cents in, in case someone was looking to buy this.

    I like the hammer, I have two claw hammers. This one and a wood hammer. This one seems a little top heavy to me. This may be do to a lighter fiberglass shaft, but I can easily compensate for it. The grip is comfortable and makes hammering without any workgloves effortless.

    I have had this hammer about 5 years and I must say I am not disappointed in it at all. Would buy it again.

    Great hammer, nice feel, weight and durability, August 9, 2011

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    It’s light weight; I crawled around on my back in a 2-3′ high, 1300sq/f crawl space installing 6 lights (receptacles and all). Took about 2 hours and hammering those receptacles in with my arm crooked and barely enough room to get a decent swing was no problem. I actually had a harder time screwing the outlets and fixtures into the receptacles than banging the nails in. The floor joists were the old white oak too, dense and solid.

    It’s got good balance; light weight handle with a solid, heavy head make it real easy to get a good swing. The shaft is fiberglass but it has a rubber grip so even with sweaty hands it’s not going anywhere. And I personally feel that fiberglass is a lot easier on the hands but a couple of old timers I work with still like wood better.

    Seems pretty durable; We’ve been doing a lot of demo work with it for 2 weeks now and it’s done everything from pounding nails to pounding pry-bars and chisels as well as knocking out old cripple studs. I’ve also been yanking old 3 inch nails out of concrete and brick.

    It sounds silly but the color is actually kind of a plus as well, makes it a lot easier to spot when you leave it laying somewhere on the job site. We had a couple of dark red hammers as well and whenever one of us would need a hammer that’s usually the first one we grabbed just because you couldn’t miss it sitting there.

    I think like I’ve given it a good run and a serious amount of abuse. I’m pretty happy with it.

    Good ergonomics, nice feel to it, November 19, 2010

    Perhaps because it’s fiberglass it has more “resonance” to its swing and subesquent impact. It fits the hand and is a pleasure to use.
    And, it’s a Stanley product.
    Good tool! Good job Stanley!
