Default Integy tool opinions needed please

Is the INTEGY-7 PC. TI-NITRIDE HEX WRENCH SET from Integy a good quality set of tools? Are the tips prone to stripping?

Stripping NO I haven't stripped one yet although I have broken the tips off the small ones only because I tightened to much. But as for the rest, I have been using there set for 8 months and like I said no stripping just breaking.
Hope this helps,

by the way Associated makes a great nut driver set.

I've stripped to many ball end hexes to even bother with another set. Not enough surface area on the head for good torquing.

I've been using a set for over a year now, broke the smallest one (silver handle, can't remember the size), otherwise they have been great. If you have big paws, get the Racers Edge grips for the handles.

I wasn't impressed with my set. I've snapped two of them, and the more used ones lost their edge pretty quickly and got very sloppy within a few months. I found the fit to be subpar and sloppy from day one compared to a Wiha driver I had laying around. They worked fine on steel screws-but were a nightmare with aluminum screws.
You get what you pay for when it comes to tools.

Practically any set will work fine. RDL, integy, associated, MIP, dynamite, hudy etc. etc. Just make sure that the tips are replaceable. Any set is a lot better than using regular hex wrenches. Especially if you have to replace a part fast and easily.

I've used many sets and I prefer the Integy ones over any other brands.
