We have partnered up with Makita and The Home Depot to give away Makita Impact GOLD screwdriver bit sets to two lucky winners.
What can you win?
(1) Makita Impact Gold 21-piece Ultra Magnetic Insert Bit Set x (2) winners
The set comes with an ultra magnetic bit holder, (20) Impact Gold screwdriver bits, and a handy carrying and storage case.
For maximum fastener holding power, the new ultra magnetic insert bit holder features a rare earth neodymium magnet that is 2x stronger than the magnets found in standard bit holders. It is designed to be paired with the new Impact Gold screwdriver bits, but can be used with other brands’ impact and non-impact bits as well.
The Impact Gold bits are manufactured with high precision tips for improved fastener fitment and reduced cam-out, Xtreme Torsion Technology torsion zones that flex under load to reduce tip breakage, and high quality steel contributes to greater durability and longer life.
(Although designed to be used with high torque impact drivers, you can also use the bit holder and bits with any drill, cordless screwdriver, or hand driving tool.)

(2) winners will be chosen at random, and must have a non-PO Box contiguous USA address to be eligible to win. After being contacted, the winners have (1) week to respond before alternate winners are chosen. The prizes will be fulfilled by Makita and The Home Depot.
What’s so good about these bits?
We previewed this set a few months ago, and are currently working on a review. Thus far, we’re liking them a lot, as they certainly seem to perform a step above conventional impact bits. The Impact Gold bits do seem to last longer than standard bits, and fastener fitment is exceptional as well. (Full review coming soon.)
I purchased the new socket set at my local Home Depot about a month or two back, and although I haven’t used them very much yet, I am impressed with their design and performance.
