Jesse, with prices that close, it is unreasonable to discern the best buy. It would take a serious spate of testing with consistent feed rates, various densities of wood and so on, to determine what is superior to what. And in the end? My guess is, “Not Much.”

My input is the cost of shipping added to the price should help you determine which one you order.

I Googled “sharpen brad point bit” and got a number of good looking hits including this one.

With the right file—much cheaper than a new set of bits—and light pressure and counting strokes and knowing what surface to dress, it’s worth a serious try.
