Hudy, XCEED, EDS, they are all from the same manufacturer in China, so go with the least expensive, which usually is EDS.

If you need balanced and lightened handles though, you will need to have the Hudy tools, together with their luxury brushes...

Hudy stopped making his own tools about two years ago.

EDS is the same thing.

Hell, Ed, the owner of EDS... used to design/make for Hudy...

and is 1/4 the cost.

I use EDS, they are great and never had an issue with them, i do not see any added value in Hudy and their GOTCHA steel, its all just a marketing gimmick. If it works it works, special blend or not.

Do you have a source of this information or a proof for your false statement? HUDY tools are manufactured by HUDY in Trencin, Slovakia in Europe and never ever were produced by anyone else. So your source of information is very wrong and please inform your source to stop sharing false information.

I regularly see this wrong information being by purpose spread by competition because if you can not compete someone with the product you at least try to badmouth the best ones in the market. Please be correct.


Thank you.

Again as my previous post. Do you have a source of this information or a proof for your false statement? HUDY tools were some of the very first professional RC tools designed by Juraj Hudy 25 years ago. All the other tools in the market came much later on, usually in the last decade or the last years, some of them being a total visual copy of the original HUDY ones and some of them even putting the registered trademark on.

Please inform your source that the information they spread is completely wrong and false.

Who are you? You seem to know a lot about Hudy or think you do. But Hudy still makes his tools in house. So they are not made and the same place.
