Other than the tip not being secure (which a $0.25 tube of super glue will fix) I love my stick and string. I have bought two now (my dog ate one of the strings). I like them better than clinton anderson's they are lighter weight and easier for me to handle. Would recommend to anyone along with the super glue.
Was excited to get one of the "natural horsemanship" sticks. It lasted exactly 5 minutes, no joke. The leather endpiece that the string ties to came flying off. I had to go find it in the sand. Did NOT abuse the stick either. That endpiece is glued onto the stick with nothing additional tying or holding it onto the stick. Very poor craftmanship and I don't see why Stacy would want her name connected to this in any way !!
