I was trying to remove the screws on the door hinges on my VW Super Beetle. I broke a couple of cheap #3 and #4 bits.

I went looking for a "good" bit and found the NAPA 775-5946 #4 Phillips Bit:



Where the cheap bits broke off in the screw when forced, this one held fast and was able to get a couple more screws out. It eventually did strip the heads on the really frozen screw--even using PB Blaster and an impact driver. But at least I know I put as much force as possible on the screw, since the bit did not snap off.
