I've just installed this, so can't comment on actual durability yet, only expected.
I selected this product because it looked strongly made and I've been happy with the quality of other Vileda products, so had some 'brand loyalty'. (I had read reviews of comparable products that said that, on those, the lug on the base had broken off.) The Vileda case is made of that tough kind of PVA plastic that doesn't break easily.
The line also seems strong. It is quite thin which allowed me to add a couple of pulleys and hooks so I can run it in a zig-zag down a passage (see pics).
It retracts nicely into the reel. It runs easily round the lug and can be removed from the lug easily too.
The only downside is the fixing screws, where were a bit cheap, I thought, so I used my own for peace of mind.
