Another vote on Wera. Got a few of there PZ2 long bits and they last a long time. For normal driver I find a set of Dewalt 50mm PZ2 (most Common) bits adequate.

I really like Wera, but ... PB Swiss bits are even better. PB Swiss is made to higher tolerances and seems a bit tougher too.

what ever you do get one off these for awkward places
you put a screw on it it grips like poo to a blanket
so you can cary screws to those hard to get at places easily :huray:

avoid using for normal screwing to keep the bit gritty and grippy

I have used Wera quite a lot but my favorite used to be Wiha diamond.

I was once over boarding a ceiling with plasterboard using a 12v Bosch drill and Wiha diamond bits. The bits used to grip so tightly in the screws that you could let go of the drill and the bit would hold the weight of the drill until you pulled it out!

The most durable and long lasting bits for putting in drywall screws are hilti. I've had a bit put in over a million screws before it's needed replacing.
