Default Power tool bits ( cordless screw driver)???

I'm wanting to buy some power tool bits for ny new MP9.

The only ones i see is the Hudy ones. Which i think are great but not cheap.

Is there any others out there???. I only want the bits not a whole tool set.

What do you use???

Thanks

Dynamite makes driver bits. They work great, probably won't last as long as Hudy or EDS but there priced right.

Mugen makes some driver bits, too.
Not cheap, but awesome quality, as one would expect from them.

I have two different sets. I have the MIP for standard and I have Xceed
For my metric. They are both really nice. The Xceed ones are made by Hudy.
But they Are half the price. I think RC Pro came out with some too.

I have the Ofna kit mentioned and also bought hudy 2.0 and 2.5mm. At first all I could do was praise the quality of the Hudy, but after time they're worn also. I'm actually using my Ofna 2.5mm driver more now because the Hudy was used sooo much. Dremel and a cutoff wheel are must haves too......when the edges aren't as crisp, just take off a couple mm and they're back to like new....this goes for any and all manufacturers. So for my money I'll buy the least expensive one knowing they'll all wear over time.

Dynamite makes a cheap set for under $20 and they have lasted me a whole year or racing and the tips still look new....

Like others have said

EDS, Ofna, Hudy, Dynamite, and MIP are all good choices. I have the EDS set and like them, though I did snap off a 2.5mm bit. First time I have ever had that happen. The RC Pro Products are good as well. I think there are some others out there, but may not be as good.
