Was at Home Depot today and found the Milwaukee Shockwave Impact Duty Driver Bit Set (52-Piece) that was $19.88 for $5.02. It was in a cardboard "Special Buy" display in the battery power tool section.

They also had some hanging at the end of an aisle.

Store SKU# 1002804932

They show out of stock at my store on Brick Seek and the Home Depot website, but there were still 6-8 left.

Saw the remnants of this. Of course the one time my HD has something on clearance it's all snatched up.

I've never used them, but figured they were worth $5.

When I was doing searches on the forums and review sites about what sets to buy, I saw nearly universal hate for the shockwave bits from contractors and such. Not a yellow vs red type discussion, I mean, I own all Milwaukee tools myself, but their bits seem to be crap.

I still have a pack of Milwaukees and some Dewalts I haven't used up yet, but I think I might try the Makita gold bits next.

I use the NON-Shockwave bits by Milwaukee, the impact ones and really like them better than most other brands. I don't have any experience w/the Shockwave, but if everyone says stay away, might be wise to listen. Peace

Same here, threw them all into reserve bits and use just DeWalt, Mikita or even Ryobi bits over the Milwaukee ones. I rather break more bits over time than to screw up more screws continuously...

I think they do strip a little more often but I find other bits break more with my impact gun. The is not enough difference for me to really care.

Pretty happy with them myself. I'm no contractor but I have yet to break any bits or strip any screws that wouldn't have gotten stripped by any other bit.

I hate shockwave bits too they just keep stripping screws. Dewalt bits arent that great either but better. I've had good luck with irving bits grip a lot better but seem to break on me every few months. just got some makita ones that are working really well atm

I might try the makita ones if these shock bits don't work. I didn't buy these ones. Picked up the half off ones.

I'm trying to find bits that work as well as screwdrivers. I've yet to have any luck with that.

Finally got them to buy some better tools at work. Just using Philips bits, the shockwave were better than no name crap bits but still showed signs of wear/tip becoming misshapen too fast for a decent bit. I should mention most people at my work cant seem to understand what the hell a clutch on a drill is for (read keep the drill in drill mode and strip the hell out of the screw head all the time). I've tried teaching them but most don't get it. Dewalt bits seem to be better. I have some irwin performance series 4mm hex bits that seem even better. They show no significant signs of wear or deformation and seem to be the best and trust me, they can screw up anything, lol. I used to have to chop the end off cheap allen wrenches so I could chuck the straight part up in a drill and they could strip one of them in one use. Then they would keep using it not realizing its stripped and not getting it tight, lol.

If nothing else, the shockwave don't seem to handle abuse well.
