Hey everyone! I'm interested in purchasing an impact lever, and am curious as to which ones other tuners are using.

I had my eyes on the Keyes Impact Tuning Lever, but then came across the CyberHammer. Which one do you prefer, and why?

All opinions are welcome and greatly appreciated :-)

Thanks,
Jonathan

I have both. The cyber hammer is easier to control becauce of its weight, balance and length. After having the cyber hammer, I never come back to the Keyes impact tuning lever.

I'm bumping this as I've also thought about trying an impact lever lately. Anoyone else has an opinion on these products?

I Tried a Keyes adjustable weight hammer. . .too heavy, too much swing in most cases. Tried cutting off some of the weight, same thing. Finally simply gave up. I don't see any real advantage to an 'impact' hammer. I can gently bump and thump my Fujan.
