Today I received what I can only describe as the best hammer in the business of paintless dent repair!

This hammer is well engineered, great for rails and extends to what ever length is needed for the repair. The hammer is seriously light with a great balance which in my opinion makes for a precise hit.

I have four hammers of different lengths that I have no need for now, simply due to the fact that I have my new Velocity hammer!
