Can anyone Recommend a GOOD Spudger Pry Opener Tool Set.

 

I had a set of Spudgers like these which came with my iFixIt repair tool kit which I bought over ten years ago. The tips broke off only after a couple of uses so not buying that sort again. They are plastic. I have two metal spudgers similar to these. But they can be a bit rough on plastic. So I suppose what is left is nylon spudgers like these.

 

What I mainly use them for is to open and clean my entertainment remotes which tend to get sweaty inside and need cleaning about once a year.

 

AliExpress has a huge nylon range (or any material for that matter) for very little dollars.

I've found that the Jakemy tools are very good and not too expensive eg I've got a JM-OP08 which works well for opening small devices for just a couple of bucks. They're made of a thin flexible metal which must be some memory alloy as it readily returns to its non-bent state. 

 

(Changed the link to a Google search as the store I bought it from can't be mentioned on geekzone).

I notice that that item sells on TradeMe for $10 each including postage, and $19.81 each from another TradeMe seller. Whilst on AliExpress they are $11.03 each including shipping. Either way they are quite expensive.

 

There is a similar item on AliExpress from DIYFIX at $5.99 for QTY 5 including shipping.

I bought mine from the unmentionable site that sounds like beargest for less than NZD$3 shipped.
