the only OFNA bits that are sub grade are the darker colored cast version's....the Machined Ofna Bit are Just as good as EDS or any of the other Expensive brands.

I agree. I have been using the ofna bits for 6 months now and they are still going strong.

Thats what I use. The clutch works perfect, if you set it to 2 or 3, it will tighten less than when I do it by hand, that way it wont strip the threads, even if its a plastic part. I think it was about $20 at the HD. I bought the Xceed drivers, they work pretty good.

Anyone that votes for the hitachi hasn't used a Makita.

The losi 8in1 hex wrench set tips are great and are a direct fit.. mine lasted about a year before getting rounded a bit. Thats with excessively heavy use.

I wanted the Makita but not having an adjustable clutch worried me. The Hitachi has been awawesome. Makita has always been my favorite power tool. So I take it you have no problems with stripping threads going into plastic.

anyone that votes for a makita (i am assuming the white one) has not used a hitach (and we are talking the newest alien looking one).

It is the clutch that is the killer on the hitachi, that thing is more accurate than your own hand. the hitachi also spins faster than most, which helps the impatient types like my self. I first got the Ryobi and chucked it after one use as that thing is dog slow.

although while snooping I found Makita has just come out with their hitachi killer...

http://www.makita.com/en-us/Modules/...aspx?ID=187828

specs are identical to the hitachi (like speed and clutch) but at twice the voltage and twice the price.

I have always been a makita fan with my bigger tools, looks like I have some hitachis for sale?

Default RYOBI Stinks

RYOBI 3.6 - Taking it back to HOME DEPOT now. Battery won't make it through a day at the track.

Toss up between the Hitachi DB3DL 3.6-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Screwdriver
or the Makita TD020DSEW 7.2V Lithium Ion Cordless Impact Screwdriver Kit

Anyone use this white Makita yet?

Hitachi! 2 batteries and a 30min charger is awesome! The clutch is perfect for RC cars!
