I run electrical wires through walls, which requires drilling holes through studs. Often this requires the use of a right angle drill, and then using a bit extension (like this one) with a drill bit to drill through several studs (sometimes as many as five thick, underneath two adjoining windows, for example). After having used this as well as several other extensions for a while, I would have to rate the Irwin above this one (the Titan). Here is the good and the bad:
Advantages: The black sleeve around the shaft allows you to hold and guide the extension more easily since the sleeve can be held (not too tight) in a still/steady position as the shaft rotates inside of it. This is a nice feature and something not seen on any other competing model I have found
The steel seems very high quality - I don't think this extension will ever break.
The locking mechanism holds the bit very well (except for the one big exception noted below) and there is...
I was pleasantly surprised by this product. It holds the bit either with a strong magnet or quick change sliding chuck. The shaft is covered with a black plastic cover that allows you to hold and guide it while using it. I bought this as an alternative to a much more expensive extension at Lowes. I discovered the Titan product had more features and cost less. As I said, that was a very pleasant surprise.
I only gave this product 4 stars because it doesn't turn freely within the outer covering. And the chuck makes the end larger than a normal bit driver would be, making it not fit in those tight spaces it could otherwise fit in. On the positive side I found these items (I bought all three, 18, 12, and 6"), to be well made and after fitting a bit into the chuck, I did realize the need to have a firm hold, more so than just a magnetic hold if you attempting to reach into a tight space not otherwise reachable. You don't want the bit to come out of the end of the driver. I suppose its a trade off for a no release hold you have a larger end to fit the bit in, ie chuck. I like these items and feel they are well worth the price. The friction within the outer covering I don't really understand but it is there and so I will have to be careful if used with a drill not to use for extended time on a high speed due to possible heat issues. I have found so far the Titan name means quality tools...
