Default Arrowmax Tools

I picked up a sponsor from Arrowmax Tools awhile back. I have used them quite a bit and so far they are great. The handles are really nice to work with and the tips seem to be up to par with Hudy/EDS.

Just wondering if anyone in the USA/Canada has used them.

I orderd EDS tips for my Hitachi powertools. After 2 months they where still not shipped because the shop didn't had them in stock and their supplier neither. The only other thing they had where Losi tools (don't like them too much and expensive) and the Arrowmax. I couldn't find much about on the web, but the shop said to me they come from the same factory as the EDS tools too. I hope they are not lying.

They send me the arrowmax powertools this Friday so I guess they will arrive in a few days.

I found their website... http://www.freemaxmp.com/Index.asp Their stuff does look nice. I thought EDS tools were made here in the US, but maybe I am wrong.

ordered a new buggy today and thought i'd get some new EDS to do the build justice, guy from LHS rang to say EDS was out of stock but he had Arrowmax, then went onto tell me they're both made in the same factory - 2 brothers had a fall out and so one kept EDS name and Arrowmax to the other

From the about section of their website they are and OEM maker of rc parts and this arromax brand is something new for them. Pretty good bet they have been making tools with different names.

I am just wondering if there would be demand for these tools to bring them into Canada/USA. How many people would be interested?
