The Rx is high on functionality but lower on any ﬁner features. The tools are a good length, making them easy to use in tricky spots, but the plastic body has hard, uncomfortable edges.
When used with any degree of pressure, we were aware of more ﬂex than we’d have liked. We also found that we needed to tighten it regularly to ensure the tools didn’t become loose.
The chain tool is held ﬁrmly on the body without any niggling rattles, it has a solid feel when it slides out and holds the chain very ﬁrmly in place. However the bolt the Allen key ﬁts into is barely recessed at all, so there’s a tendency for it to pop out when you’re tightening everything up.
The Rx is a workmanlike and practical multi-tool of a type that would have been the norm a few years ago, but it suffers in comparison to newer models – and, coming as it does from Pedro's, we were disappointed.
