You mean for electric screw drivers? or just normal wrenches?

I just got a whole set of Prolines, have them for a couple months now. they have been great. Guess time will tell. They have been perfect, even getting out screws my other tools have stripped. If these dont work. Its EDS time for me.

Also using the red Dynamites with the aluminum handles.

Going on 7-8 years or so and still work great.

I have been using the RD logics tools. They seem to be very good. I have not had one problem with them after a good 3-4 years of use. I have their metric and standard sets. Only paid like $35-40 for a set of 4 tools. They are very light weight and have hardened steel tips. The handles are anodized aluminum and color coded for size. Makes wrenching easy, without having to look at the size printed on them.

I am using the dynamite ones with the black handle with the red on top. I have had them for about 1 month and they are nice. The grip is nice and tacky and thy are pretty long. There like 20 bucks also which is really good.

I also wanted to know what the difference between ball headed wrenches and regular hex wrenches are? Pros and cons? Also I need a 3/32 wrenchand I want to buy a single one. What would be the best single 3/32 to get I was looking at these 3, any other suggestions?

I have the Thunder Tiger hex wrenches and really like them, the tips are pretty long, good for getting at screws but be careful with the smaller ones. The flex but I haven't broke one yet, Ive only had them for 3 months so we'll see how they hold up. The red handle Dynamite tools are great too, and cheap.

First set of tools I purchased were the Losi hex wrenches and they rounded off fairly quickly. I have a couple of Hudy phillips (started with a Kyosho buggy) that are ok, but didn't meet my expectations.

My favorites are the MIP hex driver bits and the EDS hex wrenches. Either one of those sets gets my vote.

Ball end wrenches are exactly that. The tip is more shaped like a ball. They are used for getting to spots at an angle rather than straight on. In my experience they can not be torqued on as hard due to their smaller contact area with the hex hole. Great tool for some applications but not most things. Use the straight bits whenever possible to get the most bite contact with the screw.
