12 point 1/2" is pointless IMO (teehee); 1/2 for greater torque, but you don't want to use 12 point sockets for massive torque, you want 6 point.

12 point 3/8 makes some sense.
Does 12 point allow you to get a better grip?

6 point have contact to the entire sides of the nuts, not just the corners like 12 point.....if that makes sense, and deffo less chance of rounding of stubborn nuts, which usually happens with 12 point sockets.

so to answer your question stick with 6 point sockets, more overall grip.

The idea of a 12 point socket is that it is easier to get onto the nut. There is more chance of the socket lining up with the nut. But obviously there is less contact area on the nut. So if you are using them for rusty stuff 6 sided are better. If you only wanna spend £30, these are better... NUTS!!

Good explanation. These are suited to tight spaces where you have limited movement, car engine bays etc. where you might only move small fractions each time.
