Default Best affordable Titanium Screws

Well, I've tried those cheap HK eBay ones to the Acer Racing ones. The eBay ones were soft as butter. Strips too easily.
The Acer ones were made of real good quality but I don't understand why the hex parts are not drilled in flat. Instead there is a sort of diagonal angle to it. The relative depth of the hole along with the angle makes wrenching a pain.
Anyone has other websites selling good and affordable Titanium screws?

As you know, Acer titanium is total GARBAGE in their 3mm sizes due to the shallow depth of the soft hex heads that strip... and they can't be used anywhere that take an impact. An email to their customer service and they claim no knowledge of this. 4mm sizes are ok. Kyosho titanium and Mugen titanium are of good and of equal quality in my opinion (oddly they are both just ever so slightly undersized from their steel counterparts). I may have to retract this entire post becuase they are pricey. So there you have it.... good screws, but pricey.

They are distributed here in the USA through Team Integy..You have to scroll through the pages to find the individual screws you want as they have no order and if you type Titanium in your search its not any better.
I don't know if there is an overseas distributor closer to you so you wont have to pay crazy shipping charges but you can look:
