Default Which new driver set?

Hi all,

I'm after a new driver set but don't really (cant afford) to pay loads out.

I have had a set of XTM for years but they have given up the ghost now and starting to cause screw head issues so I need a new set.

I mainly use the 2.0 and 2.5 and these are the ones that need replacing.

So can any recommend a set to go for that does not cost a lot.

So far I have looked at these
Fastrax set for about £14
XTM set for about £17
or
EDS set for about £24 (top of my budget really)

Any help would be great

Thanks
Michael

My other though was to just buy the EDS replacement shaft and hope I can get them to fit my XTM handles.

I found the fastrax ones to be very soft and it was easy to round the corners of the hex heads..... They could be made of cheese

I agree, the Fastrax ones are terrible. I'm yet to find something of theirs that lasts.

I use the fastrack set, the ones were they are in the handle, my imperial set is 7 years old and still working great today, nothing wrong with my metric set either had that about 1 year. Only thing with them is they get loose in the holder.

Thanks guys,

I ended up going with EDS. I found then at about the same price each as it would be in the set so just ordered a 2.0 and 2.5.

Thanks
Michael
