Background

Introduced in 2015. Made in the USA. Still in production.
The Rev has a couple other tools that are slightly different and have a little different tool set the Sidekick and the Wingman. The Leap is also very similarly built and they also share the same plier head. The handles of the New Wave also have a very similar build and may have been the inspiration for this series. That would also make the Surge and Charge similar. The Wave also has a similar handle type of the Wingman as well.
