Default What are good tools for nitro?

I have a set of integy hex drivers. Are these ok for nitro or should I purchase something else.

MIP Thorp, Hudy, and EDS are some of the best in the Hobby.

hudy tips are great and last for a really long time, however the only gripe i have about them is that the 1.5 2.0mm handles are small after a while of wrenching with small handles your had gets tired.
Check out the vp-pro tools, really great price, light weight and the handles are all the same!

I recommend the Hudy tools, last forever, very lightweight and they look sweet too.
