Where to buy good Grabbers/Tongs???

I was going to buy the Tunzes from Marine Depot but they had such bad reviews I decided not to. Anybody have really good experiences with any particular model???

Believe it or not I always had the best luck with the gophers from Walgreens. They are only $10 and I have never had them rust up on me. They also fold in half which is good to put them under the tank. I have never bought the $40 pairs from Marine depot but those handy grab ones(blue) you see locally are junk.
