Rated 5 out of 5Â by pinballer Better than the Impaktor
I have found this to be one of the best bits for Impact driving. Much more durable than the more expensive flagship "Impaktor" bits also by Wera.
I am already a Wera tool fan so it was simply a case of finding which Wera bit I liked best.
This is what I managed to do with this bit before it shattered using an 18v Impact driver :-
150x 5x60 goldscrew plus
50x 5x60 goldscrew
50x 6x100 goldscrew
50x 4x30 goldscrew plus
That's the longest I have seen an impact bit work without wearing and slipping

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Desmond The best
I have tried every type of screwdriver bit in my Makita 18v L ion impact driver and so far these have been the best. The bits use diamond dust to hold the screw rather than sharp machined edges (which would quickly wear off anyway) and have excellent grip, even when used off-line. They can shatter after a lot of use and usually when driving long turbogold screws into hardwood; probably to be expected in view of the bits size and the torque generated by an impact driver. You are unlikley to break one in hand use unless you are built like a weight lifter!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Andy38 Good, hard-wearing bit
I've bought a couple of these bits, they are hard-wearing in the fact that they don't round off - I use a lot of quicksilver wood screws.
However I've had two of them break (shatter), but both after a lot of use and both whilst driving in 4" screws into old, hard joists.
I would still recommend them though because they don't round off and they last a long time.

These tips have a good grip but I have had two that sheared the tip off under pressure with a Makita 18v L ion drill recently. Fine for everyday run of the mill use but I would hesitate if I had to drive many 1500 6mm screws again.
