MIP for me. I went thru 2 complete sets of the Parma wrenches a few years ago. Bought a full set of MIP drivers and never looked back.

Hudy are absolutely the best. They make a number of specialty tools like one specifically for Novarossi head screws. Those screws are expensive and most hobby shops don't keep them in stock, so you don't want to mess them up. And that is just one example. There are many others.

Hudy tools for me..... they feel like no other tool ,the way the tip contacts the fastener. I absolutely hate the caps that go on them.I used a set of RC1 ball end drivers for a couple of years and was very pleased with them, never thought about using another tool and bam out of the blue I wanted Hudy, If you want the hardest tip and most precision these are for you, there are some very good tools out there for a lot less.... its just preference.

yep I use the Mip's seem to last the longest and are the choice of many of the top racers.

If the tool ever does get dull you can send it in for a tip re-surface, or atleast you could in the past.

exactly! thats why i use this ryobi: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...5X-_-100634089

12 position clutch, speed load hex chuck. it locks on the bit until you pull the collar out to release it.

use this with the Ofna 9 piece driver set. works flawless

Out of the wrench sets I've had I really like Hudy, Losi and EDS sets. Hudy would be my first choice but all are really good. I found the Losi tips very strong but unfortunately they have small shafts.

I use ofna hex wrench bits with my mini driver probably more than anything else!

3 years of usage and still look and work like new.

+1 I love this screwdriver I use MIP and EDS tips in it. Great for quick disassembly, but I still need a set of tools to do the finish work. This is the best power driver for this hobby.
