Really substantial reacher tool?

catherinet(5 IN)April 17, 2013

I've bought several kinds of reacher tools, and when I use them outside for various things, they don't last long at all. Anyone have a brand that is really strong?
Thanks.

I love my ARS long reach snip and hold pruners. I just bought the longest extendable one that they sale. I think it goes from 6-10 feet. They're all really worth the investment. I also LOVE my Fiskar's Pruning Stik. I have the 5' and their longer one too. Fiskar's comes with a Lifetime warranty! The 5' is my favorite tool! After about 8 years, I wore my first Fiskar's Pruning Stik out. The Home Depot gave me a new one!

One of the commercial grade reachers from Gemplers may work better than most.

Have a search on the internet for terms like garden reacher tool and stuff like that, you should, hopefully, get the best tool available from those results.
