Default Best tools for RC

I am looking to get some GOOD hex wrenches ( allen keys)

I want them to last years and look and work as good then as they were new.

Any suggestions ?

Hudy, MIP, Losi, EDS, Serpent, Xceed. Choose your weapon;-)

(Of course, there are more, but these are my personal favs as they also have "style")

Gonna have to go with MIP and Xceed myself. Hudy is way over priced. But their setup stations and tire truing machines are decent.

I really like the EDS stuff. Its pretty reasonably priced compared to other tools and they are pretty comfortable.

Thorp (now MIP), cant beat their drivers. fair price, but last forever, dont gaul or wear out. and if u manage to snap a tip off (1 in 20yrs), they'll cut a new tip on it for you or replace ur driver. end of story

I always found it to be a PITA to send in and wait for a replacement, so when that happened to several of my MIP tools, I just ordered new ones from my LHS.
