torque wrench recommendation

My 15 year old Craftsman click type torque wrench is acting funny. It seems to work properly as a torque wrench, but the ratchet part of it locks up. The Sears lifetime warranty doesn't apply to torque wrenches, or so I'm told.

$100 over 17 years is reasonable as far as I'm concerned so I don't mind getting another Craftsman. I'd just like to hear if folks have a favorite brand of 1/2" click type torque wrench for around the same money.

I have the Griot catalog. $180 for a torque wrench is a little high if I can get a Craftsman for $100. I also prefer the distinct numbers in windows over a vernier scale.
