I would backup the positive statements on EDS.
I recently bought new tools and my must say Xray are no way as good as they have been years ago, when they still had their spring steel tips with the brown finish. Nowadays their tools seem to be harder but more brittle as well.
EDS still have the "old hudy-like steel". I can only recommend them.

I just want to put in my 2 cents. I have used a lot of tools and I fix my own R/C's and many others. Nothing has Lasted as long as EDS Tools. I have recently been using some SH tools also and so far they seem excellent, but it would be a while before I would know if they are as good as EDS. I have been using EDS for about 2 years now.

Default Yep

the EDS are my favorite, but the losi tools are great too. and the integy tools arent bad...Maybe just pick up one or two EDS tools to replace the ones you use the most, just to try them out....The Losi ones are nice beause they don't flex as much, but the eds fit perfctly....I usually grind a flat spot lower on the shaft to shorten the length just about an inch. It keeps it from flexing...

You guys use special tools? I have snap-on tools, snap-on everything, if it breaks they replace it, no questions asked. I had to special order some sizes and they cost me dearly price wise. The only thing i couldn't get from snap on was a reamer, picked up a cheap one from my local hobby store.
