In strainers I look for a few things: tight spring coils, smooth even pour, proper balance (so the strainer can rest freely on top of the tin), nice grip (I should be able to pick up the tin+strainer and strain effectively with one hand), and relatively small size.
The spring on this one is nearly perfect. Small, tight coils so only the smallest of ice shards can make it through. The cheaper strainers often have widely-spaced springs allowing larger chunks of ice through, and the pour is often uneven, which can lead to a mess when pouring into a small-mouthed cocktail glass (collins, cordial, etc.).
The pour from this is perfect. Smooth, even pour with no mess. I love this.
The size, balance, look, and construction are great. It has weight to it, and is perfectly balanced (balance point is where the ends of the spring nearly meet near the handle, which means it will rest freely on top of the tin). In contrast, the Pedrini strainer is terribly unbalanced and annoying to use.
There are two flaws, though, which is why I've given this four stars.
The measure from the outermost edge of the spring to the base of the handle is 93mm. The diameter of a standard 28oz shaker tin is also 93mm. One might think, "wow, that's perfect!", but the effect is that you cannot push the strainer forward without lifting the handle up and over the lip of the tin. This is mostly impossible without the aid of a second hand, and quite annoying. Cheap $1 strainers really shine here; one-hand use is a breeze with them.
