Wrecking Pry Bar Reviews

by Tested_to_Destruction

There are plenty of great pry bars on the market, and the five best pry bar examples are compared and reviewed in one article.

A pry bar is more versatile than its design would suggest. They can be a great all round demolition tool, if used safely and correctly. Originally designed simply to pry boards and nails up or out of position, they're now stronger, more sophisticated and are expected to work a little harder than they used to.

They're great woodworking tools to have around when you're dropping a shed or pulling an old deck out, and if you're a professional - it's good advice to have several pry bars in various sizes. Nothing takes down a building full of dry wall quite like a good quality wrecking bar and a construction worker with a purpose.

The five best pry bar tools are featured below, all are affordable, highly rated and the best hand tools in their class.

Stanley 55-099 FatMax Xtreme Fubar Functional Utility Bar

This is the best all round pry bar and will stop at nothing to get the job done. The Fubar is an awesome tool and in the right hands it can demolish, pry, smash, split and bend its way through just about anything.

Manufactured from forged steel, it's a one piece design that's incredibly strong and reliable. There's enough weight behind it to add to its overall function, yet not so much that hefting it around during a hard days work makes your shoulder feel as though it's about to pop. It's an unbelievably good tool, satisfying to use and you definitely can use it across its four in one range. Worth every last cent - highly recommended for the tool bag. Buy one.
