Rated 5 out of 5Â by CraigTx Above and boyond in transfering torque
This Flexible Shaft certainly went above and beyond its intended use. I needed to drill a hole in a wall header that I did not have access to. Through a 2" hole in the wall, I was able to use this and a 1" spade bit (Bosch Daredevil bit) to drill the hole through the double 2x header. I will state that while the flex shaft did contort some under the extreme torque, it did the job remarkably well.
So, yeah, if you want to know if it can transfer the torque, I can certainly say it does.
Obvious Disclaimers: This shaft is not advertised to be able to be used to drill a 1" hole, it may break, causing damage, injury, etc... Use extreme caution.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mcq007 Excellent product, well constructed
This tool provides the versatility to reach hard to get to places. It is easy to use and I find many opportunities to use it. The length and flexibility enhances most all of my bits an screwdrivers. This shaft provides a wonderful addition to my tool box and requires very little space. I would recommend this to any professional of home user without hesitation. The price is a great incentive and I am very pleased to have found it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JiminSH This is a great product
I've been looking for something to extend my sockets into some tight places for extracting small anchor bolts. This works great. Actually better than I expected. Much higher quality than the pictures indicate. The outside does not turn which is helpful. I'll be using this for a long time.

I am not a Ryobi tool enthusiest by any stretch of the imagination.Most of their tools are of lesser grade.
This tool I have to give thumbs up.I had this shaft turned in a U,when screwing in some Simpson tie plates.
Its great for tight spots.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by BrownEyedGal very useful
Fits perfect and gets into tight spaces, however I was hoping for a bit (see there drill humor) more flexibility. You really have to force it to bend.
