Ofna and Hudy have the 1/4" drive bits. I have the Ofna ones in both metric and us and they work great. The ends of the bits are very strong and perfect for a hand held screw gun. Anything from Hudy is good. I have the hex wrenches and they are by far the best ones I have had to date. I have owned Ofna, Losi, Thunder Tiger, EDS and all are pretty good however the Hudy ones IMO are the best quality.

MIP makes them as well. I have had the MIP hand held tools fpr a long time and love them. I have used Hudy and Ofna as well. All will get the job done.

But so far my EDS tools are the best yet.

I have the Ofna's.

The fit nicely and last as well. I've had a set for 9 years now and after many many wreching sessions, they just are showing signs of wear to the point they need replacing.

I have mip tips that work very well. I do know hudy makes the best wrenches out there so I am sure their tips are great. Too bad it took them so long to make power tips available.

+1 on the Ofna tips. I've had mine for about a year now....not a single problem. The price is good too.
