Wera 9 Piece Hex-Plus Hexagon Key Set Ball-End
Good strong Hex keys
Having broken an old budget hexagonal key on a particular job, I went for a more sturdy looking set which completed the operation with no problems. Handy range of heavy duty keys with circular stems that are comfortable to use and clearly marked with their individual metric sizes in a handy plastic holder

Seems great ... but
Bought these partly on recommendation and positive reviews. Initially very impressed, and the allan keys seemed to be the "dogs" ... but.
Firstly, the rubberised sleeves put extra thickness to the 'handle' part on these tools and I encountered some locations where these just wouldn't fit in because of this.
Secondly, the very first time I used the 1.5mm allan key, the tip just snapped clean off and rendered that tool useless! This wasn't even being used for a tight fitting, so this in itself was very disappointing.
I've had some CK allan keys for years and although they had worn out, they had lasted me a good 10-12 years.
I had no option but to take these Wera tools back (especially as one just snapped anyway), and to be fair Screwfix issued a full refund.

you get what you pay for!
tried cheaper sets before - this one will last until I retire - can't afford to retire!

Strong as you need
I had rounded off two good quality keys trying to remove a steering wheel. I bought these because of a recommendation on the Srewfix site and, with the aid of a good sized tommy bar, off it came.
