Chucker so I'm good with the single stage. Now if I can get the 650 in a few months I should be set. Any more comments...

I bought the Wiha 28506 as it was the most accurate and highest quality tool I could find for the money. I'm sure the Borka and Fat Wrench would have worked as well. Thanks again to all.
