    The paint on this tow bar was uneven and splotched. The paint was so thick and carelessly applied that I couldn't get the cotter pin into its holes. The paint was also too thick to get the two halves of the bar together. I'd recommend a different product. I still like Sporty's though.

    Cons

    very poorly made. It is not straight when new. Does not fit the nose gear properly. paint job looks like something I did to my bicycle when I was 8 years old. Basically it was made by somebody who had absolutely no pride in doing a good job.

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    This product was completely useless! The forks were sprung too wide to fit the lugs on the nose gear. The metal is so weak, the first time I tried to use it one of the catches bent. Too short for comfortable use on C182. Paint did not have complete coverage on metal.

    General Comments

    This towbar is completely useless. It is on it's way back to Sporty's for a refund. Definitely not "high quality" as noted in the ad. I can't belive this item could possibly be "more durable" than the original equipment item as noted in the ad. Sporty's should be ashamed for stocking the item. Definitely not the quality we have come to expect from Sporty's. Truly disappointing.

    Pros

    This towbar is steel and has a substantial feel to it. It telescopes down to a compact size and is lighter than I expected. Looks like it will work fine for many years.

    Cons

    Unlike the original, it has no assist for spreading and applying to the strut pins, so a little grunt and bend is required to attach and detach.

    General Comments

    I use this towbar to move my 172 in, out and around the hanger. It's an honest, strong, surprizingly lightweight addition to the hanger. I keep the aluminium original locked away in the baggage compartment.

    Overall a very good tow bar that stays securely attached to the aircraft. It is a very simple, yet durable design.

    Cons

    Paint comes off easily due to the fact that it has to telescope out to its extended position.

    General Comments

    Long enough to comfortably use on a Cessna 172

    This is a good, low cost tow bar, lightweight and suitable to carry in my Cessna 150.

    Cons

    OK for occasional use. It is a bit short, making it inconvenient for heavy pushing uphill, over bumps in the pavement etc. I will probably buy a heavier duty, longer bar for use dragging the airplane into the hanger, over door tracks etc.

    Simple, lightweight, changeable length for stowage.

    Cons

    Cheap construction, particularly paint. Collapse pin very hard to remove and replace. Has to be physically bent to fit over bolts on the wheel casting, tends to reshape itself and not lock into place very well.

    General Comments

    Gets the job done, but could be better value and slightly redesigned.
