Flipp flyer is showing $169.XX.

Did you see this in the physical paper flyers?

Perhaps the receipt can help others get the deal too.

Are the adapters to make these an impact driver safe? Read these wrenches may overtighten or strip screws/bolts if used as an impact driver?

It shows $139 in the Pro flyer for Kitchener-Waterloo stores (7105 / 7179 / 7017) - I added a screenshot to the OP.

It shows $169 for Stockyards #7013

YMMV?

Still wondering if I should go for 1/2" or 3/8". The right angle impact wrench at $249 is too expensive for the time being.

My Princess Auto Powerfist shallow but thicker sockets are 1/2" while my deep thinned wall sockets are 3/8". I do have some impact adapters and also have 1/4" thin walled sockets haha.

I'm going to go with 3/8" for more versatility. Probably the exact same tool with a different sized head on it. I don't use 1/2" sockets all that much.

True. I was just thinking that there may be instances wherein the space is too small so the shallow impact wrenches maybe better but I think I will go with your advice and if need be, just get better 3/8" shallow impact sockets.

Also, I think my sockets are all non-professional because none of them come with the pin hole that make people go with the friction ring instead of the detente pin (only in 1/2" anyway). Never had issues with all my Ryobi and Milwaukee tools with detente pin. Never even knew the difference when I bought the tools.

It's quite simple, if you change the socket often then go for the hot ring, if you always use the same socket then go for the detent pin.
The detent pin holds the socket very, very well and it takes more force to remove the socket from a detent pin than from a hot ring.

That's what I've been gathering with additional research but the thing is I have never had an issue removing the sockets (powerfist, husky, and a few others). One needs to use some force but nothing like having to require elbow grease. The friction rings will eventually have to be replaced though of course, they're cheap parts anyway.

Sometimes, it's even harder to open a stuck bottle of something.

If none of your sockets have the pin hole then that's why you can remove them easily. If they had the pin hole, then you would have to press the pin before removing the socket.

Yes, that's why.

For one stubby YT video, a commenter said his Husky sockets ( the ones I bought) were wobbly on the friction ring version.

Someone replied to test on a regular ratchet to tell if the detent pin version would be a better fit. He thinks it would actually.

This is a great deal on the 3/8" version. I have all 3 stubby's, the 3/8" was my first and remains my favorite. The 1/4" is next in line and its the newest, I can see myself using it more than the 3/8" now that I have a proper set of 1/4" impact sockets. Last in line is the 1/2", same size and power as the 3/8", but with bigger sockets. I'll be selling the 1/2" stubby soon enough, ill be sticking with my 1/2" 18v Ridgid until I get a good deal on a high torque M18 impact wrench.

My wife is going to lose her mind when I come home with more tools. Just picked up the $399 deal with a 1/2 m18 fuel impact. I’ve been eying this 3/8 model for sometime. It’s a versatile little tool.
