Got a set. Very bad quality. Not recommended.
First time I've ever heard 6 inches being referred to as "extra long."

Sorry to hear this... Reviews are pretty good40050810-Qm4nn.jpg
For the odd, awkward job, they are fine. Not for high torque applications

You get what you pay for. Pay pennies get rubbish.
Also can confirm for the odd hard to reach job they are fine but otherwise total tat. For a few quid they are ok, just.

Yup! Brilliant when you need them but I wouldn't rate them as a set.

It depends who you are comparing with I mean with the normal bits
Can't say I've ever had much success using flat head bits in a drill/driver, so never bother with them. Not sure if longer ones will be any better.
For installing loft legs these are god's gift to you. I've found these work well with all other applications too. You really can't shoot them down for the money
Could these be cut down to get into tighter spaces?
Nice spot stevieboy1, those look more useful for the odd awkward screw...
(No double entendre, from me!)
I bought a set of these a while ago but took them back because they weren’t straight.

I’ve since bought a better quality set and I find them very useful.

If you don’t want the whole set you could just buy a good quality 150mm PZ2 bit.
Any use cases as to why they are so loong?

Tbf I have those. But some stuff like doing my roof rails on car won't let the holder through the hole. Sadly this set didn't have the right hex so I just cut an Allen key and use it directly.

Shorter will require sharper angle. Longer allows Angle closer to 90... Drill clearance on post or shelf etc... Or fixing things behind pipes. Or many other tasks. I often use my 6" bit holder.

Don't see why not... I'm guessing you have a grinder? Or hacksaw.

I use a T Allen key set for the roof bars.
I haven't used this exact set, but I've used other ones that are either non-branded or from a budget brand, and they've all been poor quality. Probably come out of the same factory. The problem with tools like screwdriver bits is that if the steel is cheap and soft the tips soon wear out under load over time. Like they say, buy cheap, buy twice.

It won't be applicable to people looking for a 'cheap set', because these are the exact opposite end of the price spectrum, but for anyone looking for the *very best* then you can't beat PB Swiss. Best screwdrivers & bits on the planet, there isn't even a close second.

Because they are so much fatter

I thought I could nip then off with some pliers.
Hand turning only. Impact driven forget it.

You'd struggle, probably easier buying a shorter set. Have a look in Screwfix.

Wish to be so simple. You can pay fortune for overpriced brands just to get medium quality for fraction of the price

Same s*** different brand. good quality 140mm long bits for impact costs fortune. That's why I use my ones only if really there is no other option.
If you looking for top quality then WERA is the safest bet (top quality but be prepared for the cost of your liver and a bit of kidney.
for just a full set.

That wouldn't work for a screw that's deep set in an appliance because they always make access hole really narrow.
I needed to buy something like the OP set just to take a miele apart, the quality was really poor on those too.

Normally appliance ones are torx if not a screwdriver fits.
If you want Quality - Erbauer @ £13.95 should fit the bill.
In my experience this brand is OK. Stands up to repeated work & not craps out in the first use...
Also apparently comes in neat plastic box!
