eds and hudy tips are not the same. you can look at the profi line of hudy, they are the same tips, but are plastic handles. I kind of like those better because the handles are much larger. but the handles may not fit a tool bag. also you can check out the TOP tools. very similar in design and function

They both feel about the same and are very similar quality. So from the price point, I would go Eds.
Thanks for the feedback. Its good to receive feedback from those who have owned and used both brands.

I have used EDS Tools for about 2 years now and I like them. I have also started using SH Tools. The SH Tools are a little heavier, but I like heavier and the handles have good grips in them.

I probably would have bought the Losi's right away since my LHS carries them but I really don't like how the tips are short

I chewed through the 1.5 and 2mm tip on my eds drivers within 6 months of buying them and have had zero issues with the Hudy tips i put in to replace them over 12 months ago. I have a mate here who has a set of MIP drivers that must be 10 years old and still sweet. If you have the cash get the Hudy and you will never buy the same tool again. Everything else is second place IMO.

MIP tools are very nice and often over looked. They will last for years. I have been using and liking these lately.

same thing but even cheaper...

I also have a full set of Associated tools and have used the shit out of them with zero issues.

I have both Hudy and EDS. Beside the design, there is no different. They are just are good as each other. I have been using both for many years they are still all good.
