EDS is not rebadge Hudy, they are the same is the Xceed brand only Xceed uses green handles instead off red.
You cant beat the quality off EDS/Xceed and if you wear out a tip they only cost 2,50 us dollars in HongKong, great stuff.

I am willing to bet they all come from the same place...

I love my EDS tools.

But I still like them.

I think you'll regret it! I stripped out the head of my first screw the other day with the EDS set. I've been using them for 6 months. I take my car apart once every 2 weeks or more. The only reason I stripped out the head of the screw is that the driver wasn't in all the way or a little crooked on the head of the screw. I wasn't paying attention at the time!!!

A ball hex is more likely to break and is also more likely to round off the hex inside the head of the screw because the ball hex has a smaller contact area.
