Larger driver in the MANTA toolkit... are bitssupposed to be magnetic?

A few months back I purchased the Manta toolkit. I had already owned a Pro Tech Toolkit. I have done several PC builds in this time, and have noticed that the driver with the Pro kit, along with the smaller driver in the Manta kit, both exhibit some magnetism through the bit, preventing screws from falling off the bit.

Unfortunately, the larger driver in the Manta kit does not exhibit the same magnetism. For example, a fan screw. I do not need to hold it onto the bit with a finger when using the smaller drivers, but the larger driver, I am required to since there is no magnetism/pull through the bit. Is this intended?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I do not know if it is intended or not, but if you want it to be magnetic you can put a magnet on the bit and have it stuck to the bit when you need the bit to be magnetic. So if you take the magnetic bit from the toolkit, you can then put it on the non-magnetic bit and it will make the non-magnetic bit magnetic.

Hope this helped, even though I didn't answer the question.
