STANLEY FMHT56006 FATMAX 3-Pound Drilling Sledge Hammer
I give Stanley the best marks on this style of hammer, mostly for producing one of this type with the best impact absorption. The handle is considerably more complicated than competing club hammer, combining several elements to make it more comfortable and protect the user from shock. This includes a rubber shock collar just below the hammer head and a particle-filled fiberglass handle that absorbs vibrations, rather than transmitting them. Finally, a rubber grip helps provide you with a good anti-slip surface while absorbing even more vibration. The hammer head has also been designed with rounded edges, reducing the overall surface area in order to increase the force applied in a narrower area.
