Do you know of an alternative product to use instead of this, as these are rubbish!

I have some old Shimano Ultegra WH-6800 which need truing. They have large hexagonal nipples
Initially I tried to measure the nipples with callipers, they appeared to be 4.4mm. I purchased a ParkTool SW14.5 thinking that would fit. It was a very sloppy fit, I got a few 1/4 turns on 1 nipple with it, but then it rounded off the nipple! Doh!
So i purchased, a new spoke with nipple, and the Shimano Spoke Plug Wrench (the Shimano one is shaped for hex nipples, whereas the ParkTools only has 2 working faces)
Before replacing the rounded nipple, I thought I would true the other wheel.
Initially the Shimano tool fit really snug, and worked quite well, as I was using it, I could feel starting to round off, I just managed to get the one wheel true, before Shimano Wrench rounded off! Doh!
Does anybody make a better quality hex shaped spanner to fit the Shimano Hex nipples? I think I read somewhere the Spoke plug wrench is in fact 4.3mm, which could explain why the ParkTools didn't work?
Hi, this is the correct tool for the nipples used on WH-6800 wheels. The 4 working faces / 5 corners are the best fit you will get. We have found that Shimano wheels are built very tightly and as they get older there is a fair chance that the stainless spokes and alloy nipples will have corroded together. This makes the nipples hard to turn especially if you are tightening and very easy to round off as they are quite soft. You may need to take the nipple off, clean and lube the thread before attempting to tighten, you may need more replacement nipples or a full rebuild if the wheel is very old. The Shimano tool is unlikely to be the problem as we have sold hundreds with no issue, our wheel builder stays clear of tools with only 2 contacting faces. Thanks 29/01/2020
