If you're wear out tips pick up a pick set. try to get the dirt out before sticking you wrenches in and grinding them all to heck.

I am loving my MIP Thorp drivers. Without a doubt the best I have used. The only down fall to them is they don't have replacement tips. But as long as you don't use them as a pry bar them will last years and years. I have had mine for a while and they show little to no wear.

I have used some other brands as well such as Team Factory, Dynamite, and Losi. The Team Factory ones work pretty well. They lasted quite a while but one of the cons for me was they need a little more weight to them. For my they just feel a little to light. The Dynamite and Losi ones I like the same. They had just a good of wear to the Factory Team ones but are a little heavier so I like them a bit more. I have also used a cheap set of Dynamite ones a for the price point they were the beat I have had. They were very cheap but lasted a long time for how much they are.

Here are the ones I have talk about.

Love my MIP; their ball drivers are awesome. I've never broke or stripped one. I have one that is at least 15 years old (Thorp at the time).

I snapped a MIP 1/16 driver tonight!!! I'm not that happy. Its a 4 month old driver. Anyone know if they have a warranty?? I've had HUDY drivers for 8 years and never snapped one. A few are a little bit worn, nothing major though...

I bought most of the EDS drivers. They've been great tools. They are spring steel and nearly identical to the Hudy version, but only ~$10. It seems like they're maybe made in the same factory.

I love these tools. For the price I choose them over Hudy any day.. Epically since they are the same quality.
