I have tried the shockwave 5/16 on an industrial job, and blew them apart like a 2 dollar watch. I drive about 6000 self taps in metal each day. I have done better with their torx bits, they outperformed 20 dollar apex bits. The best bits on the shelf of lowes/Home Depot are dewalt.

Well done Joshua, I truly must agree with your asessment. While I’ve had bad luck with the Shockwave Phillips tips, I like the bit holders from Milwaukee. Still using my first one, its gotta be over two years old at this point.Read more…

They are common in electrical on our fittings and equipment, that’s one of the reasons I love the Milwaukees ECX tips so much.
