Tom IMO I like the Craftsman the best because It really doesn't matter what happens to the Craftsman screwdriver or other hand tool. IT Is The Tool That Is Warranted,,,,Not the Original or subsequent Owners!!!!Use-Abuse-Tear it apart,,, Pitch the broken one on the counter and get you a new one. It is that simple, No long lengthy explanation on what happen. Any Sears store with a Tool Dept and you are on your way, and they are made here still.
Hope this helps.

Clear handled craftsman screwdrivers have phillips tips that don't grip good and handles that you can't grip good. They are a far cry from a professional screw driver.

cdl, Darn strange!, I don't have problems with any I own. & I use them hard.
Sounds like to me if the tips don't grip then the Operator must be using the wrong size tip on a given screw! Also seems to me that if someone cant grip the handle the problem is the operator! Weak Grip! Ive had Craftsman tools since 1976 and have Never had a tool failure that I didn't cause or put pressure beyond the failure point. and even then it was still warranted. I have personally had to use some Craftsman screwdrivers as a Cole Chisel when I was out away from home having again to get something going and beat the handle off several and warranted them too! Only problems I had,,, is the Members here on YT that rag on Craftsman tools, Then rag on Me when I say they have done right by Me!
So I say Each to his Own! For me they fit my hands, the warranty has worked well for me in Any Store! I don't have to keep receipts on tool purchases, and prove I bought some tool from a given company guy in a mobile truck who may not warranty my tool just because I didn't buy it from him or the guy he took the route over from.

Think what you want, I am a self-employed professional mechanic and threw all my craftsman screwdrivers away 10 years ago when I saw the light. I critical about having the right size tip for the job, it always bothers me when I see people using a #2 in a #3 hole. Some of the craftsman stuff isn't too bad but you couldn't give me one of their ratchets or screwdrivers any more.
