"I was looking for a long-tine fork and this was the longest I could find, after reviewing specifications of different forks on the Internet, so it suits my purpose. Measuring the tines, I find that they or more like 12.5", not 13". The fork has a good balance and is not too heavy, even though it has a steel shaft. I'm expecting the steel shaft to survive my heavy treatment (I've previously broken the shaft of a carbon shafted fork). On first use it slipped into the ground without effort (though we have had rain recently), so I gave 5 stars for performance."
"For a branded product, there's a lot not to like about this fork. The head is made from laser cut steel, insteal of a forging, and the welding isn't the best - it creaks alarmingly when I lean on it. I won't be surprised when it breaks.
