3.0 out of 5 stars Bad pad placement, June 25, 2015
They're somewhat comfortable on the hoods, but there's no support at the bottom of the palm when riding on the straights. Because it's missing pad in the middle of the lower palm, all the pressure hits the outside edge of my hands and turns my wrists in. The only way to avoid this is if I slide the bars up further in my hands to hit the pads, but that puts more weight on my wrists.

The materials and ventilation are perfect on these gloves, and the construction seems solid. It's a shame that the pads cause so much discomfort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun in a compact package, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rory's Story Cubes (Toy)
Tons of fun. We like to bring these to restaurants and play while we wait for food. Beats "eye spy" and "what's missing" when you run out of things that toddlers and big kids are interested in.

We just make up our own rules and change them all the time. Keeps it fun and pushes kids' imaginations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too small, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's very small -- too small for my hands. I purchased this for my home bike shop, but it seems better suited for a saddle bag. I do appreciate the little metal hook that holds the chain while you break it, although all the pieces can be cumbersome to remove and put back together.

Ok if you're out on the road, I suppose, but I've actually never had to mend a chain on the road. Just buy a bigger, burlier model for home use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality. Great for pizzelles!, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pure Anise Extract 2 oz (Misc.)
Good stuff. Our grocery store stopped carrying Anise extract, so were were glad to be able to find it on Amazon before we had a pizzelle emergency. Oh the horror. First world problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great and seems to be holding up, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Our stock Dyson cap melted inside (I think due to hair buildup on the brushbar). This one plugged right in and seems to be holding up just fine after a few months.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smaller/cheaper but a decent replacement for the old classic, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Trouble Board Game (Toy)
It's definitely smaller and cheaper than the old Trouble games were, but it works better than the remastered versions of Candyland and Chutes and Ladders.

The instructions are terrible (there's no mention of why the number 1 is red), but we were able to recall how to play and teach our children.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Does the job...there's really no reason to pay more. It's a metal bar, a plastic wrapped handle, and a length of cheap chain. It works just as good as the whips that cost 2x the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars STAY AWAY!, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Total junk. I had the stuttering issue on my 2007 Honda Fit, so I ordered this set of coil packs. They worked for 12 hours...then the first one popped on my way home from work. I was able to limp into an Autozone on a badly misfiring cylinder. They hooked me up to an OBD II sensor and read the cylinder code. I limped home and put one of my old coil packs back in and it worked for another week.

200 miles from home another one popped. I limped into the nearest Honda dealership where they changed out another one of these junky coil packs. Over $200 later, I was on the road again. Luckily, the other two held out until I was a few miles from home...then POP! The third one of these decided to give out. I pulled out the last two of these and put in two of my old ones that looked cleaner.

I'm going on two months without any problems, so it appears that I picked the right three to put back in (plus a new stock Honda pack). Just stay away from these cheap ones. You'd be better off just paying up for one good one, and cycling through until you find your bad coil pack that's causing the stuttering.

It took some back and forth with the seller, but they finally agreed to accept the return (I still had to pay for shipping).

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to do!, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Gets the job done at a lower cost than the blue handled brand. Not much more to say. The handle ergonomics are acceptable, the teeth mate up well to Hollowtech II, and it comes with the plastic cap removal tool.

1.0 out of 5 stars It wasn't broke -- Why "fix" it?, March 2, 2015
The lack of contrast and busy graphics are very confusing for our 2 and 4 year olds. It's difficult to pick up the sequence that players are supposed to travel, or even where they should be placing their pieces. My 4 year old just tries to search for the numbers and places the pieces on top them -- totally disregarding the shades of green.

The price is right, but I'd pay a few bucks more for a slightly larger and legible piece of cardboard to play on.
