    Hey guys i was just wondering: the rapid grip pipe wrench do any of you use it and is it a popular seller.I asked this because i see in our 460 tri stands they are giving away a rapid grip. I'm thinking ridge is trying to push them.
    A fishing pole is the best cordless tool!

    I have the 14 inch and seldom use it. It looked like it was a great idea but the set of the jaws only seem to work well on pipe that is too big for the wrenchs size.

    I cannot comment on any other sizes of this tool.

      I never bought one because it seemed like another gimick pipe wrench. The standard Ridgid wrench works great. Never saw a need for improvement.

        don't have the ridgid. but i did buy the home depot style as a closeout. there is a good reason why they closed them out

        typically we work on a pipe or a fitting. to have a wrench that self adjust is not as necessary as they might think it is. too much chance for a slip

        phoebe it is

            I can see them being alright for small stuff, but wrenching on anything of considerable diameter I'll stick to the old fashioned variety.
