Default Suggest a flexhead ratcheting set please

I hate buying 2 or more tools that do the same job, especially if they are good quality tools.I am looking for my first and last flex head ratcheting wrench set. I found this set on Amazon: "GearWrench 9702 13 Piece Flex-Head Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set SAE "

Can anyone suggest equal quality, but a more complete set? I don't mind buying individual wrenches to assemble the set, but i want 1 set that is of high quality, covers large range and has many steps in it. Basically a master ratcheting flex head wrench set.

There is also a 16 piece metric version, which goes up to 25mm.
GearWrench 9902D 16 Piece Flex-Head Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set Metric
I got no issues converting form mm to ", just looking for the most complete set up to $300.

Thanks

I have no experience with that brand of tools, they may be good, they not be good!!

I began my career buying Snap-On & Mac tools. As the years passed I looked for good quality alternatives.

I've found that Napa & Husky (Home Depot) have been good choices.

One important thing about buying tools, beyond quality & lifetime warranty, is that you can actually GO and buy the tools, not having to order online. Online warranty may be good, but you have to ship them away to who knows where and wait for the replacements to arrive weeks later. When I have a tool break on me I want it replaced NOW. Home Depot and Napa are not going away anytime soon.

I was more interested in specific sets, rather than manufacturers.

I am a hobbyist, so no worry about waiting couple weeks for mail in warranty. With me, ever harbor freight tools would survive with as light of a use as i will subject them to, i am looking at premium brands for added functionality like finer ratcheting mechanisms, less sloppy flex head. The gear wrench sets i posted above go from 8mm to 25mm and 5/16th to 1"; are there sets that go smaller on small end and larger on large end or are these gearwrench sets basically as complete as it gets?
