Believe me, I understand that. I bought the Losi tools and have not looked back. Plus my home toolbox is nothing but Snap-on and Craftsman(<-- same as Snap-on, just renamed). So I understand about good tools. But then as I add it up, they are really not much more than the Losi ones. $20 is not that bad.

If you look at the handles, while they may look similar in the pics at first glance, upon closer inspection they are different

So many companies (at least 1/2 dozen different brands) are using this same tool just anodized a different colour and their own logo on them. I would love to know who the actual manufacturer is for all these guys. They are great quality tools though (I have used the EDS versions).

I do like them. Not to get off the subject but snap on and craftsman are not the same just remaned. I've been an auto tech for many years and own tooooo many snap-on tools and can tell you first hand they are not the same a wrench is not just a wrench IMO. They maybe over priced and all but they are good quality. I have a small tool box of craftsman tools that I have at home to use around the house and what not but nowhere near the same quality. Its like comparing the plastics on a HB to the plastics on a Xray.
