I hate it! Gutted!!! ...the old version was amazing, this is a cheapo copy!
on 23 June 2014
I have two of the original design of this great piece of kit from Planet Waves (fine company, have bought many of their products) and here's the rub. I lost one in a hotel in York, I think, so ordered another completely forgetting that they had merged with a larger company who now make them.
D'Addario (for it is they) has taken them over and as ever seems to happen, a natty design, well made, has been made into a cheap
shadow of the original, just to save costs I imagine. This is light metal, with a poor mechanism and feels just tacky, I only know
this because the other one I own is sitting next to it as we speak (errr...kinda) The guage and size of Mr Cheapo is unsettling and tbh
I have left it in it's bag, suggesting "it have a think about what it's done", should be ashamed of itself. I know I don't really blame the actual item, but which idiot took a fine idea, and genuine build quality, and made this 'damp stick' (random) Have ordered a Schubb instead now, which is a nice bit of kit and will stop ranting now. Don't buy this it's junk!!!
