Borrow one or just buy one and return it if you dont like it. But try driving a 3inch screw or lag bolt using an impact and then using your drill. You will immediately appreciate the tool.
It will save your hand and wrist a lot of torque and pressure and you will drive things much faster.
Best tool i've ever used. Two of my friends bought ones for their respective cordless sets within a week of using mine.
