Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The original guide was lost a long time ago. I needed to replace it so the planer doesn't wobble when planing a door or other thin edge. This guide fits and is a good replacement for the original.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These Srixon Q-Star balls are for swing speeds from 70-108mph. It has a soft feel and a coating on the outside to help with spin. I will be using these in my league this summer, and won't be too upset when some of them find the bottom of a pond or a dark forest. :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't sit square, April 3, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I tried this putter out, testing against my current putter for the last 5 years, the Wilson Blackjack putter. This Cleveland putter looks attractive, and comes with a nice head cover, but that's where the attractiveness ends. The head is offset from the shaft back and to the right. The two white squares on top of the head do help to align the stroke perpendicular to the ball. But when testing, I noticed that I kept pulling the putts to the left, compared with the same putts with my Wilson putter. The reason, I think, is because this putter has some weight behind and above the putter head. The tends to make the putter face want to be open at address. Combine that with the rounded sole on the club, which when you just let the club rest at the address position without holding it, the club face naturally turns about 5 degrees open to the ball path. You have to consciously turn the club square to the ball while swinging, which was distracting to me. My Wilson putter sits square to the ball path when at rest. Maybe it's a subconscious thing, but I tended to over compensate with the Cleveland putter and pull the putts to the left.

One other annoyance - I just this year replaced the standard size grip on my putter with a Winn Excel Jumbo AVS Black Pistol Putter Grip because I think having the larger grip will help reduce wrist movement. This Cleveland comes with the standard size grip, so I would want to change it to a larger one.

So if you are interested in this putter, I would definitely go to a golf shop and try it out first before you buy it. You may find it's perfectly fine for your putting style. I just found that it wasn't for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice concept, but needs some work, April 1, 2014
This produce was provided in exchange for this review.

The idea of a combined feather and foam pillow has merit. The problem with feather pillows is they can flatten out or bunch up and lose the shape you wanted. A completely foam pillow, on the other hand, can be too stiff or not easy to conform to a comfortable shape you want. This pillow has a foam core that is surrounded by feather.

I normally use a foam pillow because it's easy to fold it in half to prop you up for reading. And then it will flatten and compress when sleeping. This pillow, however, should not be folded as the foam core 'floats' inside the feather layer. I folded it and 'fluffed' it several times, and the foam became lumpy and creased. It was difficult to get back to its flat shape by shaking the pillow. The feather layer is soft and fluffy feeling, although there is some kind of material around it that makes a slight crinkly or popping noise when you move around. The outer shell is soft though, and there were no feather quills poking through it.

I think the pillow would be fine if not abused and kept flat. I think it could use a little design improvement to keep the foam core from bunching up, and use a quieter material to contain the feathers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for limited battery backup, April 1, 2014
I received this product in exchange for this review.

The battery backup is handy when away from home or when not near an electrical source to charge your device. It has two USB ports for charging the 1A and 2.1A devices. It also has an input port to charge it from any 5V USB output, like a computer or wall charger. The 1.5W solar cell on it is of dubious use though. For its 8000mAh battery pack, it would take at least 40-50 hours of direct sunlight to recharge it. It's nice to think you have 'free' power from the sun, but this unit will not be very efficient in that regard.

The manual provided is readable, but difficult to understand. Fortunately for OXA, this device is pretty self-explanatory. You charge it up, then connect your device to it to charge the device. Find your device battery's mAh rating and divide that into 8000 to give approximately how many times it will recharge your device.

If you really want solar charging, you might take a look at the Voltaic Systems 1023 Fuse 10W Solar Laptop Charger, 14-20V/4A Input, 16000mAh, 60 Watt Hour Capacity, Silver. I got this for my son while in the Army in Afghanistan and he was able to charge his laptop with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Useful, yet confusing, April 1, 2014
This product was received in exchange for this review.

A battery power source is a good idea for mobile devices when you are away from home or cannot otherwise recharge your device. This one packs plenty of power, with 13,000mAh of capacity, using Li-Po batteries. The 2W solar cell on the case is also handy in a pinch if you happen to be outdoors in daylight, however the 2W charge rate will take quite a while to fully recharge the battery - probably about 60 hours. You may be able to charge a low power device directly from the solar input. The case seems to be rubberized and rugged, although I assume the solar cell could easily be scratched or cracked by impact. It has a handy 1-LED flashlight as well.

My main problem though is the lack of instructions. The included, transliterated English sheet is practically worthless... the image text is tiny and unreadable, and the English is incomprehensible. I have no idea what the "Solar Input" mini-USB port is for. It comes with a 18V 2A AC/DC adapter for... what? There are two switches on the unit... one is a push button that you hold for 3 secs to, I think, turn on the power output. And there is a slide switch that turns on the flashlight in one direction, then slide it to the other side to... turn on what, just the charge LED indicator? There is a green LED that says "Solar" that is always on no matter which switches are on or off - I don't know what that means.

Sorry guys, but I just can't recommend this until there are more clear instructions and better diagrams written for it. Spend more time on your User Guide and I think you will be able to sell this more easily to an English-speaking market, especially at your current (high) retail price-point of $299.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick power in a pinch, March 17, 2014
Length:: 2:44 Mins

I was given this item in exchange for a review. I think this battery backup would come in handy as an emergency source of power if you are away from home, or when hiking, camping, boating, fishing, biking. It provides limited backup power for your smaller mobile devices. With only 2600mAh of capacity, it will not likely last for long.
