I honestly have stripped more screws with hudy tools than my losi tools. My mip wrenches have yet to strip a screw. When my losi 2mm cant get out a screw I reach for my mip 2mm and it will get it out. And honestly I have had my mip 2mm for years now, and there handles are the best, like said above you hands will thank you. Anyone wanna buy a hudy 2.5 and 2mm wrenches? Wanna order mip 2.5mm and ball end

Never had a complaint about my Integy set just get the set with the big handles. Also they have ti nitride and spring steel replacements. Now their parts I would never buy again, when I was younger I learned my lesson about cheap materials.

I use an electric screwdriver most of the time and the Ofna hex bit set is holding up very well for me

I agree. I love my hudy's and I have all the MIP hex driver for my Bosch drill. They are indeed high quality

I use bullet also. The hole in the handle for extra leverage is a nice touch. But where to buy the replacement tips. I've had mine in use everyday building, cleaning, disassebly, tuning...for what ever reason, but everyday. So now after 1.5yrs I'd like to get replacement tips cause I know these will wear out sometime.

[QUOTE=Integra;4516380]not on real driver's....the tip is only 3-4mm tall...so if u strip it...ur down to about 1-2mm of actual head which wont cut it.,....regular old alen keys u can do this with...but driver's wont take it.

Not trying to call you out man but I have done this before with several diff. brand hex drivers. You just have make sure you take no more than the area
that has been worn. Only good for time though because there just isn't any room left.


I agree a couple of you other guys about the EDS tools, only bad thing about them is being knurled. Yeah I know, alot of people like that but if you work with as much as I do they will eat your hands up.

I've had most of my Hudy tools going on 4 years now. Yeah they're not cheap, but considering the wear and tear they've taken and how they still keep ticking they're worth it IMO.

For the cheaper tools the Losi tools look pretty nice though.
