Talking ok, another "best" thread--hex drivers

ok, so like the title says, whats the best buy for hex drivers? im looking for something that wont round off or wear down easily, something that fits tight in screw heads. im kinda stuck between the hudy and MIP drivers, whats everyone think? any others im missing that are on par with those?

I just got some TTR tools. They are extremely light weight and look great. Hopefully they last long.

Hudy makes nice products and you cannot go wrong with anything they make.

+1 for Bullit, there are really 2 tools in one as you can use them in an elect screwdriver and as a regular driver.

i have a set of the integy drivers and IMO they arent that great, ive had some of the tips twist, break, and wear down. ive used the trinity tools with good luck also. the TTR tools look awesome because they are so long, that would really come in handy alot of times!

those bullit drivers, how do they retract in and out? they look nice, how lngs do the tips last?

I have been using Thunder tiger drivers for over a year now, and they are still as good as new.

I've had them all.
Associated, Losi, Integy, Wolfe, RPM, Hudy, MIP.

I would have to say it's a tie between the MIP and the Hudy. I would give Hudy the edge because you can replace the tips if you break one but then MIP evens the playing field with their larger diameter handles that are easier to "torque" down screws. Both companies also have excellent 'Ball End" wrenches that I've never had break or even slip in a screw for that matter. The RPM line of of hex drivers is also pretty good.

Ive only snapped 1 of my Integy's...doin something i Knew i should'nt have...My 2.5mm is like 3 years old and still goin strong..same with my 3/32......and imo if u twist the shaft u put Way too much torq on it....Hudy's are nice but not worth it imo.
and if those bullit driver's use the same holding mechanism as the OFNA multi wrench...i would'nt touch it...that thing barely holds the shafts and when u do get it in the groove its a Nightmare to pull it out...needing some Plyers to pull it out.
this ofna driver.
