All Hudy here!

Tried RD logics and in time the tips were rounded and started eating up screw heads. I have a set of MIP/Thorp straight tips and the Hudy ball tips fit even tighter then those do.

Hudy seems to have the best quality and best fit out of any of the sets I tried.

Cost isnt bad once you initially buy the wrench since the repalcement tips are pretty cheap at about $8-$11. I havent needed to replace any of them yet but not a bad price when that is all you need to make the wrnech new again.

PS you think the wrenches are the best, keep in mind their car kits use all Hudy steel for all the steel parts. I love my XB8EC and its quality.

I would also say MIP and/or Hudy. I have tried quite a few of the other brands mentioned and with a tool, might as well buy the best of the best, because anything else usually causes frustration in the build process.

Snap on sucks, I rounded 2 hex wrenches on the same screw. Went to get my Team Losi tool set, now all is good! I have had just about every R/C brand of tool out there and I must say they are all good basically. Some are better in certain areas than others, but that's the game. I would put my THS Racing set of hex drivers up against my set of Hudys any day. I am not saying Hudys are overpriced, I am just saying some under priced tools are also underrated. Right now I am partial to my TL set as I have all 16 in a Duratrax tool case and everything is neat, in order and fits very well. I like to keep a couple tool sets on hand just in case anyway

EDS is definitely Equal to Hudy IMO Plus you can get your name on the set, Not sure Hudy does that
