hudy is junk, the fastest wearing tool of them all.

i think the silver steel regardless of brand is a lot stronger.

mip is the way to go , if you wear them out they will resurface them free for life.

i do like my hudy nut drivers though, just not the allen drivers

ed was an early buyer of hudy. thats why the tools look identicle.(glow wrench turnbuckle wrenches..etc) ed buys his tips from the same manufacturer as hudy so the tips are the same. from experience with them, they are great tools! for the price also!

Scott who carries the MIP stuff in alberta?
I take it you guys carry the o'tools in calgary as well?

what does everyone use for flat blades and phylips? I picked up a set of stanley screw drivers from the local discount store it has the best novarossi flat blade Ive even owned and two perfect screw drivers for kyosho phylips.

i used EDS before and migrated to Hudy finally. Frankly, EDS are value for money but you need to pay attention when using the hex driver(especially smaller size one). They tend to wear quite fast and then damage the hex screw(happened to me few times and brought me troubles).

Hudy mainly for serious users, though it's more than 3 times the price of EDS. I think is still worth to own.

I like my Hudy tools! I've owned MIP (not bad either, but you cant replace the tips), Dynomite, and others, but my Hudy stuff holds up better to daily wrenching. Hudy also makes some very precision special tools, such as the drive shaft pin replacement tool. I've repined all of my drive shafts, and all of my track buddies drive shafts, saving us all tons of money! The money I've saved with that one Hudy tool has paid for itself, and all my other tools. Hudy has the best tire truer, bearing tools and wrenches in my opinion. Yes they cost a bit more, but for seriuos wrenching they work well, and if you buy replacement tips instead of new wrenches its actually much less expensive.

No tools last forever, so at least buy a brand you can change tips on.

I like the Mugen tools the best, great fit and lasting. They also have power tips


2nd Hudy or EDS, I have both they seem to last the same ( my metric is Hudy and Standard EDS) easy to tell apart

3rd mip, I like them but I have broken a few tips and for wear reasons I would rather be able to replace than breaking being the only way to replace

where do all you buy your rc tools? is there some good sights anyone can recommend? the only places i have found a good assortment of tools is impaktrc.com and amainhobbies.com. i pretty much use both those places for everything i buy but i would love to find some other online stores that carry a broad selection if anyone can help out.

This thread is great, from spending 20minutes reading this thread, I have learnt that every tool mentioned, including Hudy, MIP, EDS, JConcepts, AE, LOSI just to mention a few are not only the best hands down, but they all break wear out and are garbage!!!

I love it!!! each and every tool is the best ever but at the same time wears quickly and breaks!!!

I know who "the tools" are now!!!!!!
