Worth the Investment
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
After using fully plastic tire levers and breaking about 5 sets, I decided to spend the extra money and get levers with a steel core. After using these one time the difference was immediately noticeable. These have the benefit of a solid core so the risk of breaking them is very low, and the plastic coating gives me the reassurance that I won't scratch my wheels.
Pricier than a plastic set, but it's worth the investment because they will last you longer and you probably won't have to buy another set of these again!
