Well I've been using the crap out of these and so far I am very pleased. They fit in the bolt heads very well. I will be buying there other sets as well.

Thanks for throwing up this review tiny I've been eyeing these at the local hobby shop.. I might have to snag up a set they do look nice.

Oh yea got the rest of the JR tool sets today, now I have all of them. I got an EDS tool with changeable tips and it is high quality for sure. I've had the JR metric and sae hex drivers for a while and would recommend them to anyone, they are holding up great and fit the screw hexes really well.

Tiny,

Have you tried the MIP tools? I haven't come across anything better but will take your word for it and grab this set if you've used the MIP line up already and opted for the JR stuff

Tiny,

Not to shat on your JR pick up but coming from RC Heli's, I haven't had better experience with any other product for feathering shafts and having to use two alans simultaneously the MIP works so well that a 1.5mm alan screw lodges into the MIP tool can literally be held straight up and the screw won't fall out from gravity the grip is precise its perfect.



But I'm attracted to JR's tools because of the case and the obvious empty slot created when a tool is used lol! I've lost so many MIP tools its hurts at 15/pop. .
