Brad-point bits

A.J. Hamler
Been years since I did a thorough accounting of my drill bits, and I'm getting rid of ones that are lost causes and sharpening ones that I can. But I still need to buy some replacements. Who's making really good brad-point bits these days?

I bought some "Colt" brad-points several years ago and liked them, but they don't seem to be around any more. The Fisch Forstner bits I got a few months ago are positively awesome, and I see they make brad-points as well, but I'm concerned with some of the reviews I've seen. It seems that if you get the ones made in Austria they're top notch, but the ones they contract from China are problematic. Trouble is, you never know when ordering them where they'll come from.
