    I bought the lasertip set and some random chiseldrivers and insulated drivers. Got them from chadstoolbox.com

    Review Update

    Sorry I haven't checked back in guys, the holidays have been crazy. So far I have about equal time on both sets and I prefer the wiha's. The grip on the wera's is just not as comfortable to me. They grip fasteners about equally from what I have seen, but keep in mind these are the chisel drivers. I have abused these drivers to the point of being ridiculous and they show almost no wear. I would say that if you are trying to decide, order 1 of each and see which grip works for you.

    +1 on the Wera lasertip drivers... Klein screwdrivers bend and twist to easy... At least the new ones. I have older drivers which were made much better.

    Do most of you use the insulated screwdrivers? Right now I just have non-insulated, but I have been thinking heavily about getting the insulated ones since I work on 460V stuff quite a bit. The only thing I dont like about the insulated screwdrivers is they seem to only come in longer shaft sizes. Wiha and Wera only show 6" shaft for their 1/4" slotted. I'm use to using the 4" kleins. I will have to re-arrrange my veto if I get longer ones.

    I had my truck broken into and lost about $5,000.00 worth of tools so I had to replace almost everything quickly.
    Fortunately they didn't get my Wiha insulated drivers or my Snap-On.

    I just replaced all my Klein and left it at that.

    As far as multi bit divers go I like the Lennox 9-1 over the Klein due to the 5/16 nut driver being much more rugged than the flimsy Klein.

    SK makes a set that i used for a long time, i love those things. but w/ the veto, its not practical because screw driver sets take up too much space.

    now i keep a klein 11-1 (shrader remover model), pic quik multi (longer bits for deep, hard to get screws) and pic quik stubby, a large flat head and phillips. thats it, does the trick.

    Kline tools are the way to go. I like going home to see my family and I like my tech to see his also as I require he have Kline hand tools and Fluke test equipment. I also require all refrigeration hoses be replaced every six months at a minimum or when they are damaged.

    I just bought 2 Wera lazertips. #2 Phillips and flat head. So far I like them. The lazer tip grips extremely well. Might take a day or two to get use to the handles, but they do fit in my hand nicely. My choice was between the Weras and Wiha. I went with the Wera because of the lazertips. Only time will tell if i made the right choice.

    For those of you who already have them, how well do the tips hold up as far as longevity?

    I'll buy your old ones. I replace mine every ten years.
