              Fatmax Nailed it
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love this hammer, Its light and it is so easy to use. When hitting something solid or a hard nail, you dont get the pain in the arm like you do with regular hammers. This hammer absorbs the vibration and doesn't allow it to climb up your arm and jar your teeth. You can swing this hammer all day, sure your going to be tired but not having your arm fall off after a days work is worth its wait in gold. I've pulled nails that I couldn't get to come out with my other hammer. I now only carry one hammer and its the FATMAX.

                Best Hammer I've ever purchased!
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a fantastic and comfortable hammer. I've had this for several years and it is my favorite hammer for demolition. The curved handle is very comfortable to grip and swing - I like these handle shapes because it feels like a more confident grip and I think I can get more torque when I swing. This will easily last through demolitions, hammering concrete pavers apart, building cabins, etc. In my opinion, this is the best hammer in this price point for durability, power, impact, and comfort. I have another hammer that I use over this one for framing but it is about ten times the price of this hammer and I bought this hammer long before I could make the investment. I have many hammers from other brands but this is the best demolition hammer, hands down. The exceptional weight of the head transfers an amazing amount of force and the hammer is durable enough to break, pry, and chip and smash concrete, walls, cast iron tubs, etc.

                  A Great Hammer, Made Better!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I picked up this hammer a few weeks ago as my previous Anti-Vibe hammer was starting to show its age after a few thousand nails. This time around, I went with the slightly larger 28oz hammer - fewer hits is starting to mean something for me, especially when I helped my family put up a 40x80 pole barn. The slight improvements all the way around should translate to a hammer I can use for many, many years.

                    No Hand Pain
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been using a wooden handled hammer for years. I have constant pain in my hands and fingers. After getting this Antivibe hammer, I was shocked to use it and the pains in my hands was diminished after a weeks worth of hammering. I am surprised how just a change in the hammer can make so much difference. There is hardly any vibration when hammering 10penny nails all day. This hammer is made with the framing person in mind. It doesn't take as much force to drive a nail and when you mess up and bend one, well no need for a crow bar, this hammer is stout enough to pull out the nail. I just cant get over how my hands feel after using this hammer for a week. I look forward to using it for a long time and maybe getting my hands back to normal and be almost pain free. What a great tool!!!

                      Well balanced hammer!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] When I first received this hammer, I didn't think I would like it because of it being about 8 ounce heavier than my usual hammer. However, this has turned out to be a really great hammer. This hammer is very durable and has great features. I love that it has a milled face, magnetic nail starter, great grip, and most of all, how well balanced it is. All you could ask for in a framing hammer. I highly recommend!

                        Excellent balance and feel
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] After two weeks of use, I can say I'm very satisfied. The tool's balance and anti-vibe helps me use it for extended periods without being tired. The magnet is great feature that allows for one-handed use.
