I believe Protek screws ARE Lunsfords. Keep in mind, Protek is Amain's brand. They don't manufacture anything, they have other manufacturers do it and throw the Protek label on them. Are Arrowmax's as good....doubt it, but possible.

Key giveaway on the Protek's....Those are Lundsford labels on the baggies.

I have a set for one of my buggies and the quality seems pretty good compared to the titanium screws I got from Protek for an eb48sl. I have no clue what the longevity is like though as I've only had them a short while.

Titanium Screws from Kyosho, Mugen and Yokomo are alright.
The Tamiya Titanium Screws are a bit soft.

Lundsford are much better than protek, I found protek on the soft side compared to lundsford.

And looking the picture protek screws do not have the beveled end on the treads that lunsford have.

IF ProTek screw are Lunsford why not just get Lunsford? I refuse to support a place like AMain.

Those labels are an industry standard (for hardware).

I run stainless Torx hardware in 1:8 and they are labeled the same, as are my steel hex hardware bags from another vendor.
