Default Hex Wrenches

What's a decent set of metric hex wrenches that aren't the HUDY ones that cost $50?

Those look good; but are TiNitride shafts better? They're on the Integy ones... can I trust Integy?

profiTOOL line of Hudy is excellent as Ultimate Professional and affordable! Tips are made of same material, just has a different finishing in the handle
Team EDS has good tools too, I have a 2.5mm Hex Wrench Ball that I like so much.. its in the same price range of Hudy profiTOOL

It's the HUDY ones that are too expensive... any wrenches cheaper than that that are decent? I'm really looking to get a wrench set under $35 for 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3.0.

Thanks!

I have just about replaced all the Ti ones on my Integy wrenchs with steel ones. The Ti ones break too easy imo.

I know I'll get flamed for this but if you need flat tipped hex wrenches I really like the ones from Dynamite. The handles are large and heavy and the flat spot keeps them from rolling off your pit table.

Team EDS......bought some today and really like them. I had Dynamite and I do like the flat spot on the Dynamite handles as mentioned but I prefer the tip length of these EDS wrenches and the fact that they're made from spring steel like the Hudy's.

i've had my ofna ones for no less than 12 years now... the small size TiNi tips do break though no matter which ones you get. i have a steele one for the small sizes.. round handles do roll around too though.

Which OFNA ones? The black-handled alu ones? or the different colored collection? Could I have a Tower link? Thanks!

go with the profitool they run around 7.95 each same tip as there 15.95 tools just a diffrent handle, also the handle is a little bigger which makes it easer to hold.
