Solidly built and excellent quality

A very nice nut tool. As with all things Metolius, it's built to a burly standard and feels *solid*. By comparison, I can pick up BD's nut tool and flex it with my hands - not so with the Freenut. Very rigid, and thicker than other nut tools on the market. The hollowed sections in front of the clip portion help save weight and provide an excellent area to attach a keep cord.
Drawbacks: The palm protector is nice, but could stand to be a tad wider. It's still a little uncomfortable to pound on full force, but it is an upgrade from most nut tools.
It's also a tad heavier than most other tools, but not enough to exceed the JND (just noticable difference), so it might as well not be.
So, not perfect, but very well made and worthy of anyone's dollars.
