Catfish Flipper

Anyone know where you can buy a GOOD catfish flipper. I used to have some that were galvanized with a rubber grip. All I can find are the cheap H&H aluminum ones. Hasn't someone made them out of stainless??? Thanks!

I bought a $0.99 screwdriver, heated the tip and bent it at about the 3/4' mark. I have had the same now going on about 20 years. I drilled through the handle, cut an old trawl float and tied it through the handle. I won't unhook a catfish off a trotline without it.
