Another price match battle with Walmart, where it is also $17.80 (after the store pickup discount). https://www.walmart.com/ip/Klein-...r/46651838

For $20 shipped from Canada I prefer the Rolgear gearless ratcheting screwdriver. Much more ergonomic.

I have one of these. It's ok, but not like other Klein tools. I don't like the bits that we'll - I think the little one rusted and they seem soft overall.

Interesting product but if we're comparing apples to apples, the multibit version is closer to $30 shipped. The only one I'm seeing for $20 shipped comes with a single bit. Do you have a link to a $20 deal on the multibit? Please post if so, and thanks in advance.

Surprisingly, the only ratcheting screwdriver I'll ever swear by is a Kobalt I got years ago. It was one of those 30 in 1s or something like that, but the ratchet mechanism has been perfect after 7 years of heavy use.

I have the Milwaukee ratcheting screwdriver with ECX bits also, and I feel it's very overrated. The ratchet mechanism is flimsy, and the bits are a pain to get out. Most of the time I use it as a standard Phillips #2.

I've had rust on a few Greenlee multi screwdrivers I've had. It might be point of manufacturing though. Some people have great luck, but mine have seemed to rust.

I can't speak to this Klein, but my experience with others.

Read the reviews before plunking down $18 for this....

-The biggest thing to note is that the reviews say you need bits with ball bearings on the side. I'm guessing standard bits will just fall right out of this if angled downwards, or move around in the shift when held in other directions.

Straight up, I have that exact issue quite often with this sucker. And I'm using the bits that it came with!

The one I am referring to has no bit. You put your own screwdriver or nut driver bit on it. It also has no storage in the handle but I carry so many bits in holders that they wouldn't fit anyway.

I have the 4 inch here (Prices are in Canadian dollars which equals about 75 US cents) -

https://www.rolgear.com/product/4...it-driver/

Super smooth toothless ratchet so you don't hear any clicks and a very fine degree needed to ratchet. I can hold the shaft and flick my wrist and the handle will spin like a fidget spinner. It is that smooth. Also has a small normal size handle instead of the gigantic ones common in most ratcheting screwdrivers. Fits in my front pants pocket.

Picture here - https://www.rolgear.com/rolgear-b...ley-tools/

Also a 6" here -

https://www.rolgear.com/product/6...it-driver/

Not saying these are for everyone, especially if you want to carry bits in the handle, but I abandoned my big heavy expensive Snap-On ratcheting bit driver for this small light weight one, which is my go to driver. Also has a lifetime guarantee.

I have seen them on Amazon but they are priced higher there with free shipping than buying direct from the company and paying shipping.

For screwdriver bits I don't bother with anything but Makita Impact Gold bits. A pack of 4 costs $3.97 at home depot. They are designed to last 10 times longer than other bits and a precision made to be an exact fit for the screw, #1, #2, #3.

You can see videos on You tube where they put a screw in at a 45 degree angle and then let go of the heavy battery operated screw gun and it just sticks to the screw.

I was paying 50 cents a bit for regular bits that were getting worn and pitted in 3 to 6 months. I have never replaced a Makita Impact Gold bit in years. I have only had to replace them because I lost them or gave them to people.

Thanks - picking some up. I have so many generic brand driver bits laying around the garage and it's a crap-shoot figuring out if it's worth a damn or if it's going to strip out momentarily.

I have this screwdriver. It's good driver IF you want the ratcheting, I'm just not a fan of the ratcheting function.
