Recommended material for spiral spring

I printed up a couple of the Universal Auto-Rewind Spool Holder out of Prusament PETG.  Everything works great except for the spring; the PETG is too soft and bends backwards.  I'm hoping that someone from the community can recommend a different filament type that will work well for a "spiral spring".  What should I go with?  PC Blend, ASA, or PLA?

Here are several types of springs:Spiral Spring

 

Here is what the 3D printed spring looks like:
