Default Arrowmax hex driver tool

Does anybody know if the "purple" line of tools is as good as the honeycomb line? I've heard a lot of good comments on the quality but I don't know which line people were referring to. I'd like to know before I spend $200 on them. I was also going to order direct from arrowmax in HK has anyone had good or bad experience with doing that? Thanks

I have had the purple tools for about a year now and still using the same tips! Good stuff

Cool, thanks guys. I just noticed that the purples are spring steel tips and so are the honeycombs but the honeycombs are TiN coated. But the process by which they machine the tips and the spring steel is probably all the same and price is pretty reasonable.

I ordered my Honeycomb tools from Hong Kong. They arrived without any problems at all.

I actually prefer the feel of the purple tools over the honeycomb.

How long did it take to get them?

I may end up with honey comb (if I order from desoto racing) because they don't have all the purples!i want, or may just or deform HK . Also wanted to ask. Is the 120mm tips the ones I want? It seems pretty long. But that can be good for reaching deep fasteners.

I have both honey comb and purple. Personal preference is the honey comb. The drivers are SUPER light. But as for the tips, I don't really rate the Arrowmax tips. Had a few go on me and replaced with Hudy tips, which are the bees knees. I'm happy with Arrowmax handle, Hudy tips.

One last question... Are the purple tools actually purple in color or are they blue? They look blue in the pictures.

Thanks... I thought I saw them in 100mm but I am not finding those now. Are yours the 120mm?
