I've seen plenty 8-19mm sets on the likes of ebay but has anyone got a set that's proven reliable?

It depends on what you are using them for, the flex heads can be irritating if you want to put pressure on them, halfords stuff is usually good quality, i do like Facom but it gets a bit pricey, the higher end draper is good too

It all depends on your budget

I've just picked up a 12pc set on ebay for £23. If they're rubbish they go back for refund. Being ratchet tools, I wouldn't loosen or tighten with them so no real strain on them. I'd use them for the likes of winding lower suspension ball joint nuts off/on and adjusting handbrake cables.

Thanks for the reply posts.
