Which software security testing tools do you use?

Hey guys!

I’m writing an article about software security testing tools. I wonder if any of you could share your experience. Have you used tools like Netsparker, Zed Attack Proxy, or Nessus, or perhaps there are better options? What were the pros and cons of using the tool?

I would really appreciate the feedback from pentesters, security experts, or anyone possessing hands-on experience with security testing tools.
