Having gone the way of the pnuematics (I have and love the Hitachi HR90AE), I haven’t had to use a manual framing hammer in a while. The best ones that I recall where the Daluge or the Vaughns….I like and still have the Daluge even though it is a bit more pricey compared to the Vaughns….Both Daluge and Vaughns have a nice line of Titaniums…and you can get handles in wood, metal or fibreglass….either one of these makers were well made and balanced….Remember though that it is your swing that makes the hammer work…not the other way around…an expensive hammer will not replace good eye and good coordination…
