Last Edited by widgit September 10, 2016 at 05:25 PM
I saw this set online. They had 3 at one store and 5 at another (online stock quotes) in the KC area. I ordered 2 at the store that had 3. Got there and they said they were OOS. Called the next store and they said they had 2. I asked him to take them to the service desk and pressed SUBMIT ORDER for them online. I got there and they gave me the $24.98 ones in the newer case. Below are the links to the old style and new style cases. Many stores in the KC area were out so you will need luck just to find one with it. Then they may either 'screw up' and give you the newer style case or may substitute it if they say they are out of the old style case.

*EDIT-NO LONGER AVAILABLE on ebay. All sold.
FYI-There is a seller on ebay that has a Cobalt 21 pc set with the new case. I ordered it a few days ago and received it today. He has two left. Search for 'Bosch CO21 NEW 21-Piece Cobalt Twist Drill Bit Set Assortment in Plastic Case '. They are $42.00. Many sellers on ebay and Amazon have the older cobalt set in stock but want $150-$200 or more for it and they are only 18 pcs!
Here is the Cobalt set I received today...

Yes. Still not sure why the OP bought the 'new case' ones for $42 on ebay or maybe I'm missing something.

They are COBALT bits. Much better. These are Black Oxide bits.

Black Oxide is used for soft metals, wood, and PVC.

Titanium drill bits have a higher hardness level typically than cobalt drill bits. However, the titanium is a coating on the drill bit, so you won't be able to sharpen the drill bit and keep the titanium coating. Both titanium bits and cobalt bits are more expensive than traditional Black Oxide bits.

Cobalt bits are a special formulation of high speed steel with cobalt added in to withstand very high drilling temperatures. Cobalt bits are specifically designed for drilling very hard, abrasive materials such as treated stainless steel, titanium and cast iron.

Some say Titanium is better...like this guyhttp://www.familyhandyman.com/too...s/view-all

It also depends on the brand. Be sure to look at reviews.

There was 4 at one location. I figure I'll buy it in the morning since lowes login isn't saved on my phone. And it's no longer sold. What ever. If I really want drill bits I know where to get them. Black friday

Inventory is not off, the guy who processed your order needed it.

Isnt black oxide the coating used on the lowest grade of bits why is this a good deal? 50% longer than HSS what are these made of? Hmm no info on metallurgy on the Bosch site either......... bosch usually is a little more than + side of average quality tho.....

Waste of time. Just got a call from Brian saying they don't have any.
