Default hex tools

I find myself in need of a good set of hex tools. I'm tired of the L shaped tools that I have been using to strip all of my screws. what do you guys use? I don't mind paying a fair price but some seem to be really high priced. are they worth paying twice the price for?


Thanks

It actually goes through Amazon. It is very secure. I have bought lots of stuff from EDS and Amazon with no problems. Just click on check out and see what I mean.

Those eds tools do look nice. I use a lot of torque when I tighten a screw, sometimes to much. The mips are the only tools that seem to be able and handle the load. I know this sounds severe but with other wrenches that have a setscrew holding the tip in the handle, I have actually had the setscrew dislodge itself and also pull all the threads out with it trying to remove a screw!
I never strip a screw out either, you wont find any dremel marks on my buggy.
