Rated 5 out of 5Â by Judson Great Set
This is a great little set - excellent selection of bits & a really nice case to store them in. I've used a variety of bits over the past couple of weekends & all have held up well - no sign of wearing down so far. I really like the magnetic nut drivers - the magnets are quite strong & really expedites the process - especially helpful when working on vertical surfaces.
I've been using this set with the Rigid X4 Hyper Lithium-Ion Cordless Drill and Impact Driver & as expected, they work flawlessly - very easy & quick to switch out.
Great selection of bits, quality storage case & a product that holds up well - can't be beat!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HomeSenator Does not strip and takes the abuse
This is the first bit set out of many I owned that performed through the abuse. I bought it to install garage shelving and I had to drive every screw in the stud. With 18V impact driver with no pilot holes in place, these bits took the impact beating and drove screws 3â deep in the stud. I was not expecting these would last the project but the bits did not strip at all. Honestly, these turned out to be better than some of those red and yellow brands I own. Itâs a great product for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by joelav22 I found a new go-to set
I love using my impact driver, but I hate how it eats bits. I have tried many different sets from many different manufacturers. Some are much better than others, but I think this set will be sticking around for a while.
It has all the popular sizes and multiples of the really popular bits (#2 square drive for example). They old well in both my impact drivers chuck, and in a standard drill chuck. All of the bits I buy have some kind of "torque zone", but ridgids design actually works. After driving about 30 3" screws into studs, the phillips bit showed no sign of wear. I also didn't have a single stripped or damaged screw head - and I was not using premium quality fasteners.
The case is really nice too. The lock mechanism is sturdy, but slides easily. It is also stackable if you have other ridgid sets.
The nut drivers have magnets on the inside. This is a huge help for me when driving self tapping screws.
I will definitely buy this set again when I wear these out, I'm just not sure when that will be

Rated 5 out of 5Â by doresoom Good bit set
This bit set works great with my impact driver. The detent groove makes for really fast bit changes, and they still work with a traditional drill chuck too.
I'm not sure how effective the "torque absorption zone" is, since I've only had the set for a few weeks. It sounds like a good idea though - a more flexible transition to absorb some of the initial impulse from impacts in order to alleviate stress on the driver head. The only downside is that slightly less energy is transferred to the screw, but I haven't noticed a perceptible loss in performance.
The case the bits come in is great, and holds everything securely in place.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by avgjoe full size bits, the way every bit should be...
When they first came out they were a little high priced, then the dropped the price a little and I bought a pack. At that point I swore I would never buy a pack of the 1" bits that need a holder again. There is no sense in that. bits falling out, getting pulled out by the screw you just drove in, needing a bit holder... 2" bits are the way to go. So much so that I bought 6 or 7 more packs. I gave 4 packs to me lead guys and I put to more in the shop for when we need to replace them.
10-12$ is perfect. $15 is a little high for me. $20 is too high.
but it doesn't matter. Like all good things, they are non stock items and are no longer making them...
If you can find them or order them online, do so, they are great bit sets.
