Like the title says, I want to buy a Fasst Company Torque Spoke Wrench kit, preferably with all of the heads.

PhotoUnfortunately, it's out of stock at Rocky Mountain, BTO, and Motosport. Although it is available from Fasst Company, they're asking for $70 more than the retailers listed above...

If anyone has a kit in good condition, I'm interested!

Any reason the Tusk Racing one won’t work for you? Appears to be in stock and comes with four tips.

None at all, but I wouldn’t hesitate in buying any of them.

FasstCo torque wrenches are top notch. Also the team there is great and super helpful. There's something to be said for buying "made in the USA," too. There's my 3 cents.

I have not tried the other options listed but I tried the OTC and it was junk. I also have the Excel kit. I like the FASSTCo way better than the Excel!

Tusk does just fine. I only use it to make sure I get them tight enough when trueing the wheel or learning what a new torque value feels like say if you go from a KTM wheel of 59inch lbs to a Honda wheel of 32inchlbs.

I have experience with the pit posse. It feels very well built but when I checked the calibration it was way off. About 0.5Nm in the CW direction and 0.7-0.8Nm in the CCW direction. Typically you would build a wheel to 5-6Nm (sorry I don't deal with in-lbs) +10% off what it should have been reading. Could have been a bad one. I could go into a bunch or reason why using torque to build wheels isn't the best method but if you aren't an experienced wheel builder they server a purpose.
