"Maybe I'm too picky, but I sure would prefer a good handle that held the bit securely, and without any wiggle. At 68 I've got enough "wiggle" of my own. As for the bits, they're good quality."

My thoughts also on the Magnatip handle. At one time Brownells offered a collet type handle. I have one & it does take all of the "slop" out.

I just looked online & I don't see that Brownells still offers the collet type handle. As a good friend of mine says " if you find something that works for you buy several while you still can".

That's what I was thinking, it may be luck but if someone has a good handle or two that they like, dedicate it to just that task. I may have one, but I don't think I actually still have a Brownells handle, if I do it's burried. It doesn't seem to matter, it's just a bit holder. I have a c clip handle that takes up slop and I like, but it's an older one that's good, slim profile, but many are bit stickers.

I use mixed import and Brownell sets and misc. bits, and three or four handles. I like all or most of the bits in there own handle when I'm working on something, so there's little swapping bits in and out.
