Default Hex Wrench Arrowmax

I was planing to buy a new Allen wrench set last month but waited cause I was checking out arrowmax they didn't have what I wanted. They do now but wanted to see if anyone was using. They look awesome pricing is reasonable. I was planning to buy amain protek line but thought the arrowmax stuff looked more detailed. Any feedback haven't seen anyone talking about these being I'm on rctech daily

Also any team drivers with discount codes. Also my search feature does work on my pad for some reason it closes.

Not sure about those but I just bought the Losi 8 in 1 and I couldn't be happier. I was using the Duramax stuff before that and broke a few.

Changing tips is a PITA.

The Proteks are okay, but I'm not really a fan. The hex tips seem to be smaller than my EDS set, and that allows the tips to wiggle more in the screw head. This leads to more stripped out screws. I've had to use the EDS to get screws out the Protek's couldn't, or already stripped.

No idea on the Arrowmax.

Have heard that arrowmax was started by a guy that worked for EDS. Thinking a brother of the owner at EDS. Not much difference between the two. This is only hear say.

They do look good!!

I have a set of the ArrowMax hexes and they work great and are excellent quality. They use the same spring-steel as EDS and Hudy, so they should last a long time. All my tips are still looking great after a year of use!

Thats interesting you said that because when I placed my order for EDS hex drivers I instead got arrowmax drivers. No biggy tho.

Pulled the trigger bought a full metric, standard, reamer, tuning and spring set total of 14 wrenches for 130 shipped not bad these look to be high quality their design seems comfortable and nice shipping is 1-2 weeks will post pictures when they arrive for others to see. Also the replacement tips aren't overpriced which is cool

As promised here are some pictures. Very high quality tools awesome design especially front portion the neck extends over the shafts for support. The ends buttons are colored different between metric and standard. I took ten days for the package to arrive to Hawaii direct from the factory -Asia. I received 13 tools paid 126 shipped.

I have Eds tools and hudy tools same quality it seems. The tips look solid I would bet they will last just as the higher end tools. I plan to order another set for my home station found serpent America sells Arrowmax also
