Dissapointed
the sock is a heavy plastic and the tail is always stretched out, even in no wind. material should be linen or similar so you can get a sense of the wind speed.

Works good for me
I have had this windsock for a long, long time. I replaced it several times though the years. The sock is very durable, but is too stiff to get an accurate wind speed. I hunt and fish a lot, so wind direction is important to me, so for me it works fine.

so-so
1. The assembly instructions are confusing and inaccurate. It calls for lining up a ring hole with a single stitch seam and there is no single stitch seam. All seams are double stitched.

2. It states that one stitched side of the sock is longer than the other one and that side should be on the bottom. Both sides on my sock are the same length. Very confusing.

3. The sock is very stiff. Sticks out straight even with no wind.

4. I called the phone number given for help and was told that the person that could help was not in. Very frustrating.

Good.
I like the wind sock. To be honest, the sock is stiff. Can't really tell what the winds are doing. It acts more of a wind vein than anything. It could be cheaper.
