Default Electric driver bits

Wanting to get some electric driver bits, but not sure what you get. Was looking at these but they are getting bad reviews http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Hex-Wrench-Kit

I've owned that Losi set. It's not bad; but not great either. The bits aren't consistently sized so some hang and some are a touch loose. I broke the 3/32 bit the second time I went to use it (by hand). I didn't have it under a strain, just purely twisting (not at an angle) and the tip snapped.

Hate to say it, but I've owned a few sets and the Hudy is hands down the best.

You can waste your money on other less expensive sets, but in the end I wish I had bought the Hudy's up front and saved the headache.

Give Matt @ Premiere Hobbies a shout.

I like the EDS tools. Spring steel like the Hudy's but cost less.

Get Hudy or EDS bits. I have the Arrowmax bits for my hitachi powertool. The EDS where out of stock and I've been waiting 2 months for them and got the Arrowmax tools because they were in stock and someone told me they are from the same factory than the EDS bits.
I own them for about 2 months now and they are doing great so far.

Where did you guys pick up the EDS bits from? I haven't found them yet. But I agree about the Losi bits. I just bought those not long ago and they piss me off. The 2.0mm bit constantly gets stuck in the chuck and is a pain to get out. Don't waiste your money.
