I don't understand how they can clain a 15 oz hammer would have the impact of a 23 or 24 oz.? They had noting to back up their claim that I coul see at the store.
I always framed with a 28oz Vaughan, bought a Stiletto Titanium hammer 10 years ago and have never looked back, they do pack a punch for the weight.
I see that Stanley and others have their versions now, haven’t really looked at them that close but I’m sure the claims are true. I say go for it. Myself, I prefer a wood handle.
If you need a good demo hammer buy a Estwing, there pretty much indestructible, I’ve had the same Estwing for over 20 years and only use it when I need to abuse it.
