What are the prices like for the plastic handle tools? I have a set of the original hudy wrenches and they're excellent. If there isn't much of a price difference i'd get the originals.

I like my Hudy's but the tips wear.
I personally think the MIP remakes of the Older Thorp Wrenches are simply the best made and I have ALOT of wrenches.
The MIP's are a lil bigger handled but great for those hard to get screws.They are VERY well made and last forever.

The one they included in the M18 kit absolutely sucked. Tip was too soft.

In the Xray M18 kit, they included one short tipped + driver with a ProFit (profit) handle I didn't quite like it. Either the tip was too short or the handle was too small. It didn't feel real comfortable, but it got the job done.

I think if you buy the comosite set, the tips are the same as the Pro version. If you want the bling-bling factor, go for the Pro version. If you want the reliable, but inexpensive, get the integy ones.

I origionally was waiting for the Profitools from Hudy, but the wait proved to long for me so I just spend the $$ and got the normal hudy tools. After comparing them to my screwdriver that came with the M18 I'm glad I just spend a few extra dollars. The grips of the real tools are much more solid and are definatly worth the extra 4 or $5 per tool IMO.
