    seems a good price as the Pro range is top notch and comes with lifetime guarantee iirc

    shame it doesnt have a full run down of parts included

    Not a bad set, but if your spending that kind of money on a set of tools, I would be looking at Draper tools personally.

    And look what I have found for you:

    Slightly more expensive but in the long run a better tool set

    ya its a good set but you need to look at whats in it as far as sizes as halfords seem to miss out ones they dont think you need i.e 11mm 16mm 18mm. where as other dont but then it depends how must are you going to be using them.

    to be honest I am not going to be using them loads, but at least I will have them if I do need them. For example odd jobs on the car that I am happy to do and taking things off that need cleaning and polished etc.

    Thanks for the draper info, do they come with a lifetime guarantee as well?

    The think I likes with Halford Proffesional sets was that they would replace a socket if you broke one as comes with a lifetime guarantee on them. Has come in handy a few times

    That set is good value at under £100, you get the 3 sizes of ratchet, some ratchet spanners and even some impact sockets

    I've got that set.
    I've had it about a year and had no problems with it. You'll find virtually every size socket you'll ever need. Well worth the £100 it cost me!

    never had an issue with their Pro range, the finsh on it seems on par with some of my Snap-On stuff.

    not broken anything yet
