I recently purchased a used pair of Dura-Ace C24 tubular wheelset. Super light but needed truing. To my surprise, the spoke wrench for these C24 wheelset is not a standard spoke wrench. I went to 4 or 5 bike shops in Vancouver, Canada and no one could true these wheels!!! Kudos to Bike Tires Direct for stocking this rare tool. The spoke wrench worked well as you would expect from anything from Park. But the "Boom Stick" goes to Bike Tires Direct for stocking this tool.
A good price and quality spoke wrench tool, however it does not fit Shimano wheels correctly at least for series 10 (nippleas at rims) and 500 (nipples at hub). for the mall side 3.75mm, nipples are larger and for 4.4mm, nipples are small. Probably for another Shimano wheels it fits perfectly.
