DeWalt Claw Bar 10"
My review comes from the perspective of a professional roofer, and this tool is a must have. Whether I'm working on roofline construction, laying felt & baton (or removing it), roof tiling, or working with fascia/soffit/guttering this claw bar is always in my tool belt. It has taken a lot of punishment over the last year and it still digs out nails like it was new. Great leverage ratio for a small 10" claw bar, even pulls huge "old-school" framing nails with ease.

wrecking bar as described
Using this tool as a nail remover and pry bar. It functions well as both and is a solid construction tool. The smaller size makes it easy to carry.

Exceptional nail puller
I just love DeWalt tools, hand and power tools. I bought this to de-nail a load of floorboards in a house before lifting them. I have a Stanley one of these but this is so much sturdier made and I like the circular part, really digs in around the nails. I would highly reccomend this product, buy one and you wont be dissopointed.

Best nail puller I have used
At 25cm long this isn't really a pry bar, but it is the perfect nail puller. There are three parts to the tool;
(1) nail head digger, on the side - put the ring around a flush nail head, give it a thump, and the wood around the nail head is crushed to allow you to use one of the claws.
(2) short claw - this one is rounded, and digs in very well if you start at a 45 degree angle and give it a couple of blows. Use the length of the bar to lever the nail out.
(3) long claw - this sits at end of the handle, and engages well on exposed nail heads. It will only lift the nail a short distance, but you can hammer the claw back into the side of the nail or flip the tool to draw the rest of the nail out.
I used this tool to pull literally hundreds of nails to lift a floor, and it still shows no real wear apart from hammer marks on the striking surfaces. I can pull a four inch nail, flush, from a joist in less than ten seconds.
The only slight negative is that you really have to be wearing good builders gloves to protect your hands from which ever end of the tool you are gripping.
