Is the “FUBAR Xtreme” worth it?

I SO wanted the Stanley FUBAR Xtreme, until I saw the price. Forty bones for a glorified pry bar with a weight problem. Apparently, Will O’Brien (of Hack A Day and DIY Life) had similar sticker shock. But he ponied up and began terrorizing the walls of his new home. He’s happy with his shinny new tool and thinks that its added weight (over the lighter, cheaper vanilla FUBAR) and lean profile make it truly deadly for demo.
