I don't know the standard for measuring tamp diameters but when I measure the diameter of the small end of mine with callipers, instead of 48mm it is actually 49.7mm (interestingly the larger end is 56.3mm). Luckily the small end still fits my ROK portafilter quite nicely and I can get much better results than the ROK supplied one anyway.
The smaller tamp end is thicker in section (4.7mm at edge) and the edges quite straight forming a right-angle to the tamp surface which is reasonably flat. The larger diameter end is thiner (3.2mm at edge) with a totally different edge profile which is a rounded fillet. The tamp surface here is noticably less flat, I guess how it cooled from the mould rather than by design. Overall the plastic is thick enough for the task and does not feel brittle and I don't think it would break easily in use or if dropped on a hard floor.
Its not heavy weighing in at just 33g.
The plastic has a slight matt finish and if you tilt it just right you see there are visible injection moulding lines, it is not an elegant looking thing not something to admire for sure.
I think if you are used to using a posh version with a nice handle and metal piston end then you will hate holding and tamping with this. Neither end fits well in my hand, however I am just a beginner and I can put up with the slightly awkward ergonomics for now but I have to say if this was half the price I would be much happier.
There are different sizes of tampers so make sure you buy the correct size. This one was a little smaller than I was looking for but it does the job well and the next size would have been too big. It may be one of the cheapest around but it does the job perfectly.
I must admit that I didn't purchase this from Amazon as they charged postage. I got it from eBay who didn't.
