Hey everyone, I posted in the Electric off road and on road threads asking for advice on tools. I was looking at the JR, Hudy and EDS hex drivers tool sets and someone recommended that I look into the VP line of tools. I have a few questions for you experts that deal with VP products.

1. How's the quality (reliability, durability) of the VP tools?
2. Do the end caps rotate?
3. What's the manufacturing methods used to produce the steel? Is it similar in hardness to Hudy or EDS?
4. Has anyone had issues ordering from VP?

Thanks all!

I can answer 3 of your 4 questions..
1. Excellent quality and duability..
2. Mine do not have end caps, so no they won't rotate.
3. Haven't a clue, never owned EDS or Hudy, to high priced for me, and I am not a metalorgist..
4. I have ordered alot from VP Pro, everything from screw drivers and tools to tires and wheels and have neve had an issue.. However if it is a concern A-main hobbies carries a full line fo VP Pro products..

Have not heard about it. It usually takes 3-4 months after an announcement on Neo before it hits the states.
