    Good stethoscopes will cost you a couple of hundred bucks. Decent ophthalmoscopes can cost as much. Who can afford them when you’re a medical student with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt? But you can afford a quality reflex hammer and oh man will it make a difference in your neuro exam!

    This hammer is heavy to carry around, but it’s lighter than MDF Trömner Hammer > MDF 555 > Red Spice > Garnet. To get a reflex, you just let the weight do its work. You don’t swing this hammer. The hammer will bounce back nicely and get the reflex (as long as you hit the right spot).

    Babinski tip is too sharp, I thought, to use on patients. I use it for sharp sensation instead. The tip can be screwed off for a brush inside but I don’t use brush for neuro exam. And the brush has cheap feeling to it. It’s the only part of this hammer that feels cheap. The other hammer that I mentioned above feels nicer (and heavier) and it doesn’t have a screwed tip that feels cheap. But you can’t use the end of the handle for babinski, either, as it’s too blunt.

    It gets 4 stars because it doesn’t have a useful babinski tip for me. I don’t mind the weight because my pockets are already full and heavy anyway, but that could be a deal breaker for someone. And you need the weight to do a good, consistent whacking. I’ve used the taylor one, way too light and hard to get good reflex. The one with round head is a lot better than the taylor one at getting the reflexes but they come in only two ways: one you cannot fold the head and retract the pole, which is too large and too long to fit in a white coat, or one you can fold the head and retract the pole that you need to tighten the screw the head every now and then. This one is the best I feel. Best at getting reflexes, solid, and small enough to fit into a white coat pocket.

    So yeah, it’s, what, $20 more expensive than the taylor one or so, but it does make a huge difference. Get either of the tromner and it will make your life a bit easier.

    Forget the cheapo tomahawk style hammers the pharmaceutical companies give you… The oral board reviewers will fail you even for having the nerve to bring that into the exam room. This hammer is well constructed with what appears to be solid steel and unscrewable tips. The brand name is imprinted on one side of the handle and the other is free for any engraving. The end is not sharp enough for an effective babinski. The heft aids immensely in eliciting good brachioradialis and achilles… simply a pleasure to use.

    This is the best reflex hammer I have used. It is well balanced and has just enough weight behind it. I would recommend it to anyone.

    This set has become indispensable; there is a size for any project I attempt. The soft hammer heads allow me to adjust whatever I need without leaving an imprint on the wood. The hammers are well balanced with an easy grip. I couldn’t be more pleased with the product, the speed of shipping, and the convenience of Amazon Prime.

    I sent these hammers back, because the black finish rubs off. We were intending to use them in a commercial wood working shop, and we cant have hammers that leave thick black rubber smug marks all over the raw wood.
    Other than that they may be fine. Not for woodworking.

    They don’t have the best quality control on these, it seems. Deadblows should have loose sand or shot inside that deadens each blow. The smallest hammer has no loose material inside and bounces back. Might be a sample defect or they all be like that. I’m not bothering to return them. Still, for the price, not that bad.

Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
