Dissappointed with snapon screw drivers

I recently bought (about 2 or 3 months ago) This set of snap on screw drivers. To replace my craftsman ones that I had been using and abusing for a few years with no problems other than the bad fit that everyone knows about.

This set of snap on screwdrivers are the biggest piece of junk I ever bought. I already broke 2 and one of them broke taking out a SET SCREW . It just irritates me that i paid atleast 2 or 3 times what the craftsman cost and have had more problems. The only positive is that my snap on guy has taken care of me so far but when you have to wait for him to show up to get warranty what good is it?

Sorry for the rant, anyone else have problems like these?

Thats terrible,. But that fact that it broke and did not bend is a good thing I guess.
I am just sticking with my Craftsman and Stanley screw drivers.
I really like the handle on the Snap on ones though..

I have several sets of Snap On screwdrivers and have never broken one in the last 20 years of working on cars for a living. I have worn them out and had the blades replaced under warranty.

I hate to hear you are having a problem but your SO guy will replace the blades for you.
