I actually purchased these 2 spudgers for a special project and having successfully completed it have added them to my growing collection of dental picks, precision screwdrivers, tweezers and spudgers, all essential items for the keen DIY-er.
The plastic, non-conductive, spudger was the tool I used most because I was handling delicate electronic components and the motherboard from an Acer netbook. The metal spudger could have inflicted damage. The sharp point of the plastic spudger never deformed despite considerable pressure applied by me. I did use the metal spudger to lever over the keyboard from the chassis of the netbook, my only regret being I did not have a second spudger. I did wish the metal spudger had a sharper edge to it for prizing open panels with narrow gaps between them.
