Having moved into a new home I needed a product that would last & not go blunt within a few uses. Xtreme drill bit set has lived up to its name & is still going strong despite being used for hours on end over the weekend.
Good value for money, good sturdy product would recommend.

I have only previously used Bosch masonry bits that you get in the x-line accessory sets and they were rubbish, in a matter of minutes the heads we destroyed. These extreme bits however were much better. They cut thorough my walls effortlessly. However, I did manage to damage the wings on the small 4mm bit. I have also used the bits at a mates house and this is where the bits struggled. The ex council house bricks proved to be stronger than I had anticipated and they did beat my drill and the 8mm bit
These are good bits of the money and are better than the standard Bosch ones. However if you are going to be drilling through some reinforced concrete or know you bricks are harder than normal I would recommend SDS drills and bits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ShaggyDog Not fit for purpose
Drilled into brickwork painfully slowly. The 6mm drill bit melted at the tip, before I could drill a one inch hole, after about half an hour of stop start drilling.
I blamed it on the drill at first, but then borrowed my neighbours drill bits and drilled eight holes within five minutes using the same drill. So definitely a duff product. I wish I could post a picture of the mangled drill bit after it melted.
Useless. Don't buy.
