I got the set of Vessel JIS bits and just used them over the weekend. Definitely feel the difference. I too didn’t know they were different until I read it here on the forum. Been working on Japanese bikes and cars for years and have stripped many screws.
I will be purchasing the screwdrivers soon.
Thanks,
Dave

A great source of JIS drivers.
A bit pricey, but compared to Snap On or Mac, the price is OK.

I have both the Vessel bits and the screwdrivers and wouldn't trade them for the world!

It's funny I just looked at this topic tonight. I coincidentally just received my set of 3 JIS screwdrivers from gofastinnovations today. They are great screwdrivers! The screws that were impossible to remove before on my GL1100 are now no problem with these tools. I'm very thankful I have these in my garage.
