Default EDS Tools

I know I saw a thread about "The best" tools before but couldn't find it. Does anyone have an opinion on these? Says they use spring steel and they sure do look sweet. I like the way he marks the sizes on them. Plus he will engave them. They are not cheap but really not to out there. Any opinion? And if they suck what would you recommend? Thanks in advance!

They work fine. Just check the set screws in the handles if the tip loosens up.

Thumbs up no complaints

For the money and feel, I like them better than others I have had. I have only had one break versus 3 of another brand and that was on a screw my son put thread locker on.

How would they compare to say Hudy or Mugen? I've been told MIP is good but I am rough on my tool and don't like plastic handles. Plus the tips are not replaceable. I learned something today. I was trying to remove the hubs on my mugen and the set screw was stripped. I was like @#$$ now what! I pulled out the dremel and ground of the very tip of my hex driver, put it in and it had just enough grab to get it out. New tool! Still wanna get a new set though. My dynamites have about had it.

Try the XCEED tools, this tools are tough to break and reasonably priced.

I use EDS tools.
I could not speak more highly of them, and would put their quality against any tool out there

I use the eds hex drivers and cant say they are worse or better than anything else ive used. Im still looking for better though, i have broken 3 x 2.5 tips on both the screw end and the handle end and stripped a couple handles (when the tip moves in the handle and inturn pushes the set screw up abit and thus strips the thread when you try to get it out), all getting the bottom engine mount screws out, the handles dont seem to be the best quality, got some hudy drivers on order, see how they go.
