3.0 out of 5 stars STICK GREAT - SHAME ABOUT THE REST, 14 April 2014
First of all I should say that the Flight-Stick element of this product is Excellent, Very Sensitive and alterable to your hand-Style - Giving a really Lovely feel to your Aviation manouvering. (the only problem here is the BRIGHT GREEN LIGHT around its base which lights up each time you move the flight stick, ENTIRELY POINTLESS, and if you like to fly in a Dimly lit room is horrible and ruinous to atmosphere - ( I Love to fly the old WW1 - and occasionallly WWII - propeller planes)...Perhaps, if you were into the Modern F16 JET Type flying machines it might add atmosphere, but I had to paint over the whole thing.

The main trigger which is nice, precise and has real solid 'CLICK' to it.

But
The Truly Crying Shame of this product are the Buttons : ALL have NO sense of 'Clickyness' to them at all...
Also, EVERY SINGLE ONE of them feel wobbly and loose in their seatings giving them the feel of a real cheapo poorly made plasticky product - Worst by far of all is the Throttle Slider which is loose, and has no sense at all of that gentle traction you need to make subtle adjustments to throttling : it just slithers up and down and feels awful to use :(

The Ambidextrous Nature of the product (which, being left handed, drew me to it) is really well thought out, and easy to change over one to the other.

With some fine tuning and some (Please Gods) re-Engineering of the Button / Throttle Design (and maybe even a little OFF button for the mysterious Green Light- (which seems to be nothing more than distracting 'Snazzyness') this COULD be an All Time Classic - ...as it is, mine is sitting in it's box under the bed as I Return to my old SAITEK

Truly a Damn Shame...Could have been so good...Now just something Sub-Par for "Antiques Roadshow 2134"

1.0 out of 5 stars UTTER RUBBISH!!, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
THE WORST PRODUCT I'VE BOUGHT IN ALL MY YEARS OF AMAZONING!!!

LASTED FOR 4 (2 Then 2) ICE CUBES THEN BROKE APART - unfixable (Gawd Knows I've tried)

DON'T DO IT !!! - THE VERY EPITOME OF 'FALSE ECONOMY'

DAMN SHAME

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC QUALITY Double use Lighter, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really does feel Quality, solid brass weight feel...and has both normal, adjustable flame and jet flame choice (hold middle button down for jet ! Bottom circle is a window to see how much fuel left - ( top is "Zippo"-ish Hinge - Without any of the famed Zippo smell)

Truly happy with this lighter :D
OK
One problem is that it burns through the fuel at an unprecedented rate!! ( But bottle of fuel is like 80p in UK so no worry)

If you are umming and aahhhhing wondering about getting this: Stop Now, and BUY ! :D

5.0 out of 5 stars HUUUUGE!!!, 8 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At least TWICE the size of an average ceramic bowl
(you may need to use some blu-tack with grommett / base but wonderfully this seems to make no difference!!)

Bought because I was SO tired of the surface of molasses getting charred and still good molasses underneath....
Does the job :D

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST LITTLE HOOKAH OUT THERE, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BEST LITTLE HOOKAH OUT THERE!! ( and beleive me I have tried a few in the looking)

A GREAT Smoke....and with an Alternative Porcelain bowl ( not supplied ) Great for Steam-Stones also.

If there is one imperfection it is that because of its small stature it is very easy to knock over when bringing tubing to face if an inch too far away it'll fall over spilling red hot coals wherever it may be sat - With a rubber/Plastic Suction cup on the glass underside it would actually be perfect

I have Full size Hookahs, but I have begun to use this instead - LOVELY

2.0 out of 5 stars GRASS SMOKING ONLY - NOT FOR TOBACCO!!, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a nice slow burn Tobacco paper - This really Doesn't work / burn with Baccy.
They're Ob-viously For American kids who use All Grass roll-ups to smoke.

It May well be good for that activity but I don't smoke Whacky Baccy - ( Each to their own though - Live and let Live to those who do no harm. )
...(also, making NATURE (!) illegal in ANY form does seem to be somewhat Teeny bit deranged to me...

(Even the BIBLE* you Declare your Veracity and Honour upon in ANY Western Legal court for the caught for the 'Criminal' ownership of said plant buds/shoots Explicitly says "God made ALL the Vegetation of this Earth and saw it all to be Good" ; This almost on page one!!)

* This FACT true also in the TORAH (Judaism) and KORAN (Islam) -
And in the round, Hinduism /Buddhism /Shintoism /Daoism Etc ALL NATURE IS SACRED (In Truth ALL of Humanities largest Faiths)
When there is so much REAL crime out there ( IE: Perpetrators of so many Ugly Species; who hurt OTHERS - I am personally against the Principle of other people (namely POLITICIANS!) to Remove MY Right to make my own Responsible Adult Moral judgements when it comes to my own private action I find to be in and of itself IMMORAL. (Even though, as I say I do not personally Partake)

Don't buy em for baccy usage

PS :Finally, another reviewer said they are PLASTIC - "Cellulose", Cellulose is NOT a Plastic ( he may have been thinking of Celluloid ) But a Vegetative compound endemic to all Plant life.

5.0 out of 5 stars FREAT COMPANY AND GREAT PAPERS, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A Lovely mild flavour to the smoke, well worth a go if you're curious - we had a bit of a mix up with my order and they resolved it in literally TEN MINUTES - That says all you need to know about these sellers, GREAT and Care for their customers - THANKS FOR YOUR HELP FELLAS!!!

I'm only Sorry I cannot work out how to alter my earlier feedback, but I managed to remove it - ANY help on this would be a great help as AMAZONS search engine is COMEDICALLY RUBBISH and couldn't find it's way out out a wet paper bag - VERY frustrating when you're trying too do the right thing for a seller you did injustice to - I Hope this goes some way to helping guys :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Great idea Dimly executed :(, 17 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So,
This is a neat little idea, a Battery powered light bulb for awkward spots -
with a peel off sticky back to apply to most walls (though I doubt naked brick would work)
And a little Pull-cord to turn on / off

The 'Bulb' is plastic so no dangerous breakage worries - Great,yes?

No, sadly.

The Battery Life of this item ( Furnished with the very best of "Ultra Long-Life" 4xAA batteries available ) lasts around 2 and a half hours at most!!
(and it isn't even a very bright light it gives off ; a soft yellow glow more than proper lightbulb - which in and of itself is fine for those little nooks etc.

But as a shed / Greenhouse / Garage aid is more expensive to run than a car! really!

if they could get the life of the product to last say 10 times the time it does (say 15/20 hours) then it'd be a great and handy item.

if you REALLY NEED one of these, I advise you to buy a 4 x AA ULTRA LONG LIFE recharchable kit as well (or even 2 - to have on rotation, or go for an LED option )

As it stands , dimming to darkness after 2 hours ( and £5/£6 odd worth of posh AA Batteries ) just is not up to the work it purports to do.
A Real Shame. ( I hope they can re-engineer this as otherwise it'd be a great, useful little appliance.)

5.0 out of 5 stars TRULY THE VERY BEST OF ALL STICKY STUFFS !, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gorilla Glue 60ml (DIY & Tools)
I have an inflatable sofa - started to fall apart within 3 DAYS!!! (who's company shall-and should - remain Nameless.)
I tried E V E R Y PUNCTURE KIT an AMAZON and they ALL failed soon enough (within days) -(even the ones that claim flexability after drying - so DO BE WARNED! )

BUT....
I bought GORILLA GLUE -Whom admit had never heard of before-(the type that 'foams up'-no noticable heat(after 5 mins or so)to fill all lacunae, and also the GORILLA TAPE (which must be the strongest on the market) and, well I guess you know what's coming.....

IT WORKED !!!!! :D HUZZAH!!!!

After spending £30+(No shaggy dogs involved -That ultimately almost as much as the sofa itself!) on "Super"/ "The Best" Glues / Patches and a LOT of Hours of searching for holes in my sofa/bed it did the the job
(you let most of air out of affected area - apply like normal glues, then leave for an Hour or so and it foams a bit to fill straight over damaged area then re-inflate problem item and cover with tape Which is an inch wide and water proof/weatherproof etc ( the glue dried itself looks like over cooked pizza cheese - Not Pretty! ) I personally have 2 two metre 'MICRO-FLEECE' throws to keep sofa to keep from Various mishaps etc, As I smoke - ( And look Good - and Very good for emergency guest sheets- and general sofa snugglyness :)
So
All in all DON'T BUY ANY OTHER BRAND - THIS (from long,sad experience)IS BY FAR THE FINEST PRODUCT AVAILABLE!- CHEAP PRICES TOO!! (I bought the posh stuff first,as you do with important things (it was bloody useless)) - It also does all the other DIY stuff -Indoor AND out - you would expect from such a product Wood/metal/plastics and whatnot.

OK Proseltysing over - GET THIS ! IT DOES THE WORK LIKE NO OTHER! (on soft and hard materials!- and gives you time to adjust)

T H A N K Y O U G O R I L L A !!! 10/10 :D

PS : (and no I don't work for them, Heh!)
