Nice deal. Apparently the DAG-2 has been replaced in favor of the DAG-2.2 which has some minor improvements so I guess they are clearing out the old stock. I'm sure the DAG-2 still functions perfectly.

You should only need this tool if:

a) you crash a bike frequently, such that you bend the rear derailleur hanger
b) you don't adjust your rear derailleur properly, letting the chain and rear derailleur go into the spokes, ripping the derailleur hanger out of alignment
c) you run a bike shop where people who do a) or b) come in

I've been cycling for decades (both road and mountain) and currently own four bikes, and I've never needed to use one of these on any of my own bikes. I worked as a bike mechanic in my younger years and needed to use one of these tools on customer bikes a grand total of three times. Never had a brand new bike in the shop that needed the rear derailleur hanger re-aligned. Nevertheless, you can never have too many bike tools, so why not?

Probably cheaper to buy a new hanger as well. If you bend a hanger twice in your lifetime, then, yeah maybe this is cheaper.

Definitely better to replace the hanger, if the bike has a replaceable hanger (but many don't, i.e. the hanger is just integrated into the frame dropout).
