big difference is the craftsman bars have a full metal shank through the handle so you can hit them with a hammer and not destroy the handle. You can have ice cream, but you'll have broken bars.

What I'm describing is what many of the HF reviews already state: the metal bar does not go to the back of the handle on the HF bars. If you hit the plastic handle with a hammer it will either break or slide down the bar, or both.

The Craftsman has a strike plate on the back of the handle and the metal bar goes all the way through the handle to the strike plate. You're not actually hitting the handle.

Have a great day

I work at a dealership and bought those HF pry bars to use. They get most jobs done just fine. I picked up these craftsman ones months ago and they are way better quality. The craftsman pry bars have a striking cap on the end of them so you can hit them with a 3lb hammer if need be. The HF ones are good, but the craftsman ones are better.

you are a pro . . . as you know tools are designed with the user in mind, the HF bar is not designed to be used by a pro (8-10 hours per day) and the cost reflects that. craftsman brand has always targeted professionals.

HF on the other hand started with consumer and is working it's way to pro. most home owner wants tools that work at a low price. tools that can be used once or twice in a year.
