    Congrats guys, I am interested in your reviews, I don’t drive enough screws daily to be a good reviewer myself so it is up to you. You review will decide what I end up replacing my Milwaukee shockwave bits with.

    The Shockwave bits arn’t bad, I used a set last year and was satisfied with them. I’d be more than happy to replace with Bosch bits like you though.

    I don’t think I’ve ever really used a Bosch bit before, I wasn’t really impressed with the Milwaukee bits though.

    The shockwave bits are decent, but the square drive aren’t as well formed as others.

    Which generation shockwave. I have heard the second generation is a whole lot better. I agree though at least the ones I had (1st gen) all snapped immediately @jponto07

    Found the same thing but have not tried the 2nd gen because of my experience with the first gen.

    yah i have to agree with you, the shockwave ones across all the generations aren’t very nice, and i don’t like them. However before i found my favourite ones, they were all you could buy. its a good thing atlas stocks them.

    I was hoping that they would come in a nice case or hard case but they came loose in a UPS envelope 😀

    Do you have square drive screws down there? Try to see if you can wedge a screw onto the R2 bit so it holds without any magnet.
