Pros: Tough Solid to deliver corrections and positive reinforcements
Comments: I like that the stick an be stepped on while maintaining form. Both my horse and I have stepped on it and it's still going strong. I've dragged it through dirt, mud, and sand. I also like the ability to remove the string if you want. The leather keeper is strong enough to keep the string attached to the stick, as I haven't had to make any improvements. The stick is good for disengaging both hindquarters and forequarters and is not flimsy. Overall, it met my expectations and surpassed in some places. I would recommend this to anyone in need of a stick that is tough to handle most extremes and environments. The only thing I haven't put it through is snow and a lot of water, otherwise, it's tough.
