I've read throughout the forums that this is apparently the gold standard for pros. This is cheaper than that Dewalt torsion bit and apparently it's also better, so I'm in for one.

Makita B-65383 Impact Gold 40 Pc. Torsion Bit Set https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HYL2...QCb7EB17NY

For those without Prime, Home Depot has it for the same price:

Hopefully they have improved the metal formula in these.
These gold sets are the only ones that I used (as an electrician) that would snap off the wings on the PH2 bits almost as consistently as I could reach for a new one.
Nicknamed "gold-flake" because of all the pieces of "gold" left behind.

certainly isnt worth more than $12.
Yes, they are. This isn't a Harbor Freight set. Go thread crap elsewhere.

Have had better luck with Taiwan and Malaysian made Irwin, DeWalt, and Bosch. Just say no to Chinese crap.
Isn't Makita Japanese?

The company is headquartered in Japan but like most manufacturers produce a lot of stuff in China. Chinese manufacturing isn't inherently bad but the majority of exports seem to still be lower quality than comparable products made elsewhere.

What's the benefit of torsion? Less stress from impact driver torque?
