Default Dust on Sensor

I had some dust on the sensor of the 1D2 that wouldn't go away with the
Rocketblower so I thought of getting some dust removal stuff like a
gelstick and an Artic Butterfly. I did find the latter a tad pricey but
found a generic replacement. A proper swipe with the brush a good whirl
did not remove the dust but after a few clunks with the shutter too then
it was gone and I did not need to break out the gelstick. That what I
got was this thingy and it's priced about a third of the "Artic". YMMV,
of course:

A cheaper option would be a good quality nylon artist brush. Using a can
of compressed air, give the brush a blast and you've given it a static
charge to lift the dust off of the sensor.
