Great full set of sizes. Check carefully, a lot of other sets are missing at least one of the sizes between T40 and T60.

Unlike what you often read about other star bit sets, these are tough. I first used one to remove some ancient brake calipers from an auto undergoing restoration, and this really took some cranking. Furthermore, the new calipers came with female hex heads vs. Torx/star. Unable to find the right hex bits for my socket wrench, I decided to try to use the best-fitting star bit, not really expecting the bit to hold up. In short, I was able to tighten down all the hex caliper bolts to specified torque, with no apparent harm to the star bit. I was also able to break an ancient Torx/star bolt securing a seat belt without any trouble. (Old seat belt bolts are notorious for breaking star bits.)

So my only minor annoyance with these sockets was the plastic carrier. On examination, it appears that the carrier is designed so that you have to turn the bits to unlock them from the carrier, before removing them. However, it took more finger strength than I could muster to turn the smaller bits. I finally just used some wrenches to turn all the bits a quarter turn, so I can take them off easily. I guess this beats the situation with some socket sets I've seen, where the sockets are always falling off the carrier.

Anyhow, what matters is the size selection (complete) and the durability (excellent)!

I've had an inexpensive set of star sockets in my truck for years and finally got tired of digging them out every time I needed them in my shop, so I bought these. I chose this particular set because of a combination of reasonable price and high reviewer rating; and after having a chance to use the bits a few times, know I made a good purchase.

All the bits in my old star set are in 3/8" drive, and at first I didn't think it was a good idea for Performance Tool to use three drive sizes (1/4, 3/8 and one at 1/2"), but having had time to think about it, I realize it's a good thing. The smaller sizes can be mounted on a nut driver, and the biggest size, the T-60, should handle a lot more torque since it's set in a 1/2" drive socket.

As another reviewer pointed, the bits themselves have a good length of spline (star shape) to them, so if you ever round the edges off, you can grind the bit down and it will be good as new.

The sockets fit perfectly my Stanley 89-962 3/8-Inch Drive Rotator Ratchet and all three drive sizes of my Craftsman ratchets.

My only complaint about this set is how difficult the bits are to remove from the holder. I don't reuse plastic holders, so I'm not gigging the rating for this, but it took a couple minutes of work and a few bad words to get these things off the holder. You have to turn the sockets about 30 degrees to unlock them from the holder, which would be nearly impossible if your fingers were oily or wet. I recommend buying a metal holder for them like I do with all my sockets.

All things considered, I'm very happy with this purchase and definitely recommend them to a friend.

Seem to be nicely built. Fit snugly into screw heads without being difficult to take off again like some torx can be. Lifetime warranty. The vast majority of my tools have "Lifetime Warranty". I have no reason to think I'll need to use that warranty.

The only time I've tried to make good on that was with a Husky socket wrench. Husky would not honor the warranty. They seem to interpret putting a socket on their socket wrench and turning stuff with it as "misuse and abuse". Thanks Husky. Your tools all went into my metal salvage pile.

Anyway, getting back to the point. As I said, I have no reason to think these sockets will fail. Each one has a good length of star pattern on it. If I ever strip one, I can simply grind the end a bit to restore it. Could probably do that three or four times before they become too short. Realistically speaking, if I ever have to do that it means I haven't been using these properly.

Now for some bad. Minor stuff but it's there. The tip of the T-47 wasn't quite finished being polished and and the angle ground into the star's points. This doesn't make it unusable by any means but it is unprofessional. Minus a star although I almost didn't.

Another thing that bugged me was that it's not all that obvious how to get them off of the holder. You have to cut these two little tabs off each one and then twist to unlock the socket from the holder. It can be fairly difficult to twist some of them and even more so if I'm under my truck. Seriously considering getting another holder.

Those two things together are what made me decide to go with four instead of five stars. Even so, that decision was reluctant.

Star bits are not easy to find, even at specialty hardware stores. This one was exactly as advertised. The bits are precise, sturdy and easy to attach to a rachet.
