The set was $57.23 yesterday when Amazon’s Prime Day sale kicked off, and the price could continue to fluctuate.
As mentioned, I spent $80 for the 20pc set, and definitely feel that I got my money’s worth. At under $60, it’s a HOT BUY.
While you’re at it, I also recommend Gearwrench’s 6pc Pitbull pliers set, on sale for $74.39. Their 4pc set is also on sale, for $55.96 after clickable coupon.
If you are willing to spend a little more that Felo 0715761391 set on Prime is a deal at $86 with a rack. Usually costs almost twice that much and they are great drivers.

Ooh, that’s a tough choice.
That’s a great price for the Felo if you can use those sizes. I’m also a fan of the Ergonic handles.
Thanks for the tip! The holder makes the difference for me. Getting the Felo.
Shame there isn’t more torx in place of the precision drivers. or even a square drive or 2.
how about a tekton kit for 72 you get a 16 piece high torque handle set that is USA made and has the 0-3 philips, with stubby and long shank, and the 1/8 though 7/16 slot with a stubby and some long shank.
So similar to this but without the precision drivers. still no torx and no square but you can add those on if you wanted.
I say that but I’ll also say I like a large philps that has a hex bolster. the tekton you could put a shaft through the handle end – but I like a hex bolster.
second though you do get more for your money with the gearwrench deal, fair enough.
Tekton are good, but the Gearwrench feel a lot better in-hand.
I haven’t tried individual Tekton hard-handle drivers yet (only the multi-bit), and so I cannot compare tip durability.
How often do people still use slotted screw drivers? I use them doing some electrical work, but rarely otherwise.
Depends on what you’re doing. They can be essential when doing industrial terminal blocks. Screw terminals are sometimes Philips, but if you’re using spring clamp terminals, you need a variety of flat screwdrivers.
I have this set which I bought for about $65 last year. I’m in process of disassembling and re-gluing all 10 chairs from our 120 year old dining room set. I’m glad that large 3/8 slotted screwdriver was included because each chair has 8 large slotted screws holding in the corner support blocks under the seat cushion.
Also, my 1927 built house has slotted screws throughout. About 400 of them on the door hinges alone.
I supplemented the set with a 6” and 8” #2 Phillips and a T25 torx.
I try not to pry with screwdrivers ever since Sears went by the wayside so replacing bent screwdrivers is no longer as easy as it once was.
Occasionally enough where it’s good to have a couple of sizes.
I find them indispensable as pry tools when plastic spudgers fail, esp the precision sizes. I also use it to scrape grime from inside corners.
In terms of intended usage, some people like to swap out ugly exposed screws in the house (i.e. curtain mountings, shelves or stair railing brackets) w polished slotted brass screws. Gotta avoid power tools w those to avoid stripping.
I use pry bars for prying, but there are times when only a slotted driver is narrow and thin enough to fit.
Like you, I also reach for plastic spudgers, or wood.

I use ECX for electrical now – so my most used slotted is the demo driver.
What’s with all the tiny insulated screwdrivers in these Euro sets? I use mine in home electrical panels, outlets, fixtures, etc. no need for anything smaller than a PH #2, couple 1/4-5/16 slotted and maybe a square dr and combo square drive.
