Default Top Tools Set

Hi All,

I'm looking for a few new tools as replacement for my current "low quality" tools set.

I'm currently considering tools from Hudy and TRF. Any thought?

Thanks

Been using EDS tools for a couple of years now, really impressed with the quality. Cheaper than hudy and last just as long.

Buy a Mugen ProSpec tool set and it will be last set you ever buy.

Both choices are very good quality but your paying for the name. The EDS tools are nice and so are Integy. It all depends on which styling you like. Either way, one needs tools

I agree, get a Hudy tool set. I have been playing for nearly 6 years now... same Hudy tool set. One of the best investments I have ever made in RC.

EDS and Hudy are the same thing. Ed who owns EDS used to work for Hudy....then he went into business for himself... for 1/10th the cost

I upgraded to an EDS set myself a while ago and are finding them bullet proof. They can remove screws that broke some of my previous sets.

The quality of the.materials used.to.make their chassis leaves a lot to be desired... I imagine their tools are no different.
