Tyre Lever Challenge 2015

 Tyre Lever Challenge 2015

I am setting up a Challenge to find out which make and model of Tyre lever is the "Best Cycling Tyre Lever" on the market today for your money?

I shall be approaching bike suppliers and manufacturer's to see if they think their Tyre Levers are "The Best" on the market.

They will be judged on many different criteria including, strength, flexibility, size and not forgetting cost!

Why am I doing this? because a few days ago I went to change a tyre on my mountain bike and the tyre levers I had [practically new] broke, and I ended up using some old spoons! [for those of you who remember this way from years gone by]  your mums cutlery draw always had several bent spoons, or more likely several missing!
Do you know of a make that you feel would be up to the job! 
Let me know.

Could this be the King of Levers!

Tell me what your favorite lever is and I will try to add it to the 2015 Tyre Levers challenge.
