The Maxi S5 claims to be the “only Phillips driver you’ll ever need.” Maxi promises it’ll drive fasteners normally requiring #0 to #3 Phillips bits without slipping or tearing up the fastener. Late-night-TV boasts aside, that sets of my BS alert.
Its tip features a slightly concave area at the extreme tip with thin wings to fit inside small #0 fasteners while widening closer to the top for larger Phillips sizes.
Hey — maybe it works fine. But we have our doubts as to the strength of the thin wings, and we wonder if it represents any significant cost savings. Wouldn’t it make more sense to own an entire set of cheap drivers with many sizes of both standard and Phillips for the same money? Is it worth $8? Let us know in comments.
