Buff Pro Series - Angler II Gloves

5.0 out of 5 stars The best fishing gloves for the Amazon!!!, December 30, 2014
These gloves are the best out there. We just returned from 6 days of peacock bass flyfishing on the Amazon. These gloves were worth every penny. The stripping fingers kept us from getting line burns when the 12+ pound fish ran for it. The felt pieces were placed on the palm side of the fingers as well as in between the fingers, all strategically placed. The sun is intense near the equator, however the back of the hands were protected by the nylon. The gloves were used every day, for 6-7 hours a day and did not fail us.

I would purchase this again and they make great gifts for a fisherperson.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great for one time use! What?, May 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yes, I was happy with the one time useage and then left it in the car glove compartment to use "as needed", well it was 2 months later and the charger is dead! It does not work and I checked the cigarette lighter with another item and the lighter worked, but not the charger. Add insult to injury I purchased two of them. I am beyond the warranty period, but don't recommend purchasing this "Amazon Basics car charger". So I thought 2 ports were better than one? How about two ports that don't work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Holster Case and Stand works for me!!, May 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the second one purchased. One for a Samsung Galaxy as a test and another for a Apple 5. Using the belt clip (I clips it to my keys in my purse too) beats looking for the phone ! Clips works well, sliding in the phone takes a few tries before you get the knack of it. I felt the cases that only framed the phone exterior were useless. The clip on the back of actual phone case is helpful when you are talking as a second way of securing the phone. A few of our friends saw this case and also ordered it. Thanks for a great product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dented tin gift boxes - but hey they are free!, December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great looking tin boxes. Amazon should bubble wrap them though. My Snowflake box and Santa Claus box was crushed in the envelope. But hey, they were free with the gift cards. Just be prepared to tap or work on the tins, they are not delivered in good shape.

4.0 out of 5 stars it works, but fragile, November 12, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The limitations on checked in luggage overseas makes this scale really valuable. It saves you in paying the overweight charges. We used it to push the limits on our luggage by 2 or 3 pounds. Most of the time no one will charge you for that slight difference, as we were carrying fishing reels which were quite heavy. The item is very fragile and needs to be wrapped in clothing before tossing into your luggage. Also the batteries fall out, so first thing is to insert the battery and place a piece of scotch tape off the battery cover. Once that was done, it was great, converted to kg's and lb's with a push of a button, so you didn't have to calculate it by hand. Or guess the weight as you are schlepping your suitcase to the baggage check in scale. I hate it when one suit case is off by 2 lbs. and you have to move items from one suitcase to the other at the airport to prevent paying for the baggage overcharge. But this prevented it. When you return home, remember to take out the battery, so it doesn't leak and is available for you next trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best item purchased for Africa, November 12, 2011
I purchased this to charge two different camera batteries. This became a workhorse as some places in Africa do not have electricity except for 3 hours a day. When it is on, I could charge 3 items with the outlet and then 2 with the USB port. All of my fellow travelers had one power converter for one plug and hence could charge only 1 item at a time. This one charged at one time, 4 rechargeable AAA batteries, a portable computer and 2 different camera batteries. All off of one plug plus the adapter of course. When you travel there is normally only 1 or 2 plugs in the room and this made it simpler to charge all items when there was electricity available. This item was so valuable it was part of our carry-on and never checked in except for the plane trip home. You won't regret purchasing this one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money, December 26, 2007
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
worst toy purchased for Christmas this year! It was packaged well, guess why? The plastic golf platform was so thin it flexed. The plastic was similar to the plastic you get at the grocery store when you purchase fruit, thin and flexible. There were 3 different small motors in this system that was suppose to return the ball, raise the platform and move the platform from left to right. The only thing that worked was the left to right platform. After you changed the setting, you had to wait at least 3 minutes to move it again, as it drained the heck out of the battery. The up and down mechanisem never worked. The ball return never worked. This toy was so flimsy, the weight was all the cardboard packing material to support the flimsy plastic. DON'T BUY THIS, it is not worth the price or the frustration. This is a toy made offshore at it's worst. No quality control as to this product. I can see one motor not working, but 2 out of 3, what a loser product! The website for this company [...] is not even up and running. It is under construction, a toy company website not working for the Christmas holidays is more than suspect! I just send the manufacturer a email, will continue this email and let you know if they respond.
