Default Which Hex wrenches are you guys using

I am using the dynamite purple handle wrenches. I use them because they have the hard tips and easy to turn. I was looking to get the Losi ones but not sure yet. I had another brand(I think integy silver handle) but they kept stripping where the bits go in the handle or the tips will break. What other brands are you guys using?

This are the ones I am using now.

i love the mip stuff, especially the speed tip series. i was actually disappointed in the hudy wrenches. i have a set of dynamite with the red handles that have been awesome for a cost effective set.

I've been using the TTR hexes for around 4 years now. Not one has stripped as of yet. The only complaint that I have is that they are all the same color.

Lowes brand. too many troubles with the fancy ones. can also trim away any bad section on a regular allen to yield a new tip. I have a set of losi wrenches but they just make my tool box look good.

I am using a mix of xceed, EDS, Vp-Pro and Hudy tools

one for at home, one for at the track, and one for travelling.

I've been using THS drivers, and Racers Edge for about 5 years, and they are still intact.

My fav are hudy although I don't like the new handles. But i have tried several brands team magic, proline, dynamite, shepard, eds and hudy wins. The worst were proline and team magic was a good second but they are very hard to find and the tips were short.

Have the Losis now and really like them. No issues yet and the handles are very comfortable. I had the Thorps in the past and like them as well.

I like MIP Thorp, and EDS drivers. The EDS are very similar to the Hudy drivers but half the price.

^^^Those are what I've been using. I bought my Thorps before they were bought by MIP, mine are still like new. The EDS drivers are the same quality and have not shown any wear with pretty heavy use.
