Hex Screwdrivers

Apr 26, 2005
Under the hood
I've picked up some new gear that makes use of a lot of small hex cap fasteners, in the 1.5mm to 4.0mm range.

I have good hex keys, but in general, I've never found them pleasant to use, so I'm looking for a set of "precision" hex screwdrivers.

I've had good experiences with some older Bondhus and Elkind hex/Torx keys, but I'm not sure what their current offerings are like. Still reliable?

Wiha is another candidate, but is the Polish stuff commensurate with the German stuff?

I prefer straight ends, but this type are typically ball-end, which I guess is more flexible.

First inclination is to go with a set of Bondhus, which hit the right mix of sizes/quality/price.

Appreciate any thoughts.
This set of Beta looks interesting and has good reviews. Pic is of 8; link is of a set of 6.
