Syndrome....they are totally sweet tools, super light too, so if you travel, you can save a pound or two....

And I am not sure if its done, but we are going to a do a price cut on the tools here shortly.....though we still have no 2mm wrench.....

Later EddieO

To me the big draw to Hudy is not the handle or weight, it's the quality of the tip that's most important to me. I haven't used the HARD tools first hand so can't compare them.

when i have broken or my tools have come up missing in the shop (jenkins...) i have replaced a few with the hard tools. the tips are top notch, and overall they are a very good quality tool, and like eddie said, they are awesome for travel becuase they weight practically nothing!

Yeah the quality of the tip of the HARD tools is as good, or better than the HUDY tools. We've also got the new Team Magic tools which are high quality tips, but somewhat heavier handles and a little more affordable. I'd like to start replacing my Integy wrenches with them myself as I wear those out (or as they get jenked) as the fit and finish feels much better; you notice the tolerance difference when you put a 2.0mm end into a 2.0mm hex that is also of high tolerance..they fit perfect with no slop.

I bought one of the HARD Body Reamers ... hands down the nicest reamer I've used.

Hey! I saw you on Inside R/C. Just a quick question, do you really tune motors that fast, or was it just for the purpose of the TV show?
