New screwdriver handle from Klein that allows you to use 1/4" hex bits

I have a Dewalt handle, had it for years, that has a 1/4" quick-release. The whole thing is rubber-coated metal, and has a strike cap on it so you can beat it with a hammer if necessary. Came with an adapter that takes reciprocating saw blades, which makes a very handy hand-held saw. Haven't got a clue where I bought it, maybe Ace, I've had it for around 13 years or so.

Good God, why, why would they make this without ratcheting capabilities?  They already make the ratcheting multi-driver.  *shakes head*.  

Another beautiful blunder by my favorite hand tool company.  Uggh!

I understand that they needed to come out with a bit handle but this really does not even compete with other companies current offerings.

 

Here are just a few better bit holding handles:

The only reason I could only see getting the klien over these is having a hard on for the klien handle.
