The added length allows you to better align the bit with the screw and set the depth of the set. I have been please with the longer life I have gotten with this bit vs other bits that I have used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GO63050 Does the job
I needed a longer bit to reach some screws and wanted a one-piece bit rather than a magnetic bit holder and a stubby bit. This works well and even though the "neck" looks rather thin, it handles the torque quite well. Tightening screws was no problem.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve Best bits I've found
I'm a real estate investor and I do all my own renovations. I use impact drivers on a daily basis and I'm so tired of using cheap bits that round-over and cam out after only a few uses. I saw these on HD's site and although they're more expensive then the bits I've been using I decided to "bite the bullet" and buy an assortment of these Shockwave bits. So far I'm pleased with the decision. I've been using the same 6 in. bit all day for a week and it's still good as new. I bought #2 Phillips in assorted lengths, a T25 for construction screws and ECX bits for replacing electrical switches and outlets. They all fit snugly and holdup well to an impact driver's abuse. Until the next "Latest and Greatest" comes along these are the best bits I've found.

The Milwaukee Shockwave impact duty drill bits are great for a variety of reasons. First the Milwaukee name means you're getting a well-built product, it is made from a special alloy steel that is engineered to last longer and absorb the shock, it has a magnetic tip and the slim tight fit holds without coming loose. It can be used in all situations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by audiomanNH The head doesn't last too long under severe use
I have a slew of short bits that I bought awhile back that hold-up perfectly under severe use with an impact driver. I misplaced my old, long one so I bought this Milwaukee 5 pack. After a short amount of use on the impact driver, the head was twisted and worn. If I didn't have my old bits to compare it with, I'd expect that this was just me abusing a product and asking it to do something it wasn't designed for. Anyway, I found my old one and it's back in place happily mounted in my impact driver. I like Milwaukee products and there's nothing terribly wrong with these bits but: 'They don't make 'em like they used to.'

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EricG The longest lasting bits that I have found
I have switched to this style of #2 Phillips driver bits in my electric drill. I do not have an impact drill but I found that these bits last longer than regular bits. The bit may be harder than the other bits, or the thin shank may absorb some of the shock when the screw stops suddenly as it seats itself, but for whatever reason these bits are no my number one choice.
