Ryobi has come out with new diamond grit-coated impact-rated Phillips screwdriver bits.
In press materials, Ryobi says that their new diamond grit bits “deliver unmatched durability and performance.”
The new diamond grit coating means 20X longer life, less stripped screws, and 2X stronger grip compared to Ryobi’s standard bits.
Ryobi says that their new diamond grit bits are:
an ideal solution for veteran pros and first-time users, reducing frustration while driving Philips head screws.
There will be 3 styles of diamond grit-coated bits. Shown here are 2″ power-style Phillips bits.
There will also be an extended-length 3-1/2″ power bit.
Finally, there will be 1″ insert-style Phillips bits.
There will also be two assortments, although product listings make it clear that only the Phillips-head bits have received the diamond grit coating.
