The Unger 36 inch Nifty Nabber appears to be a strong, high end tool that is top of the line. It fits well into my hand and when I attempted to pick up a very heavy object I was able to use my other hand on the pole for support. The angle of the head is good for picking objects off the floor and well as cans and objects from high in my pantry. I really liked having the magnet on the head that allowed me to pick up some screws that I dropped in the garage without bending down. My son liked the “Nabber” so much that he is going to go out and get one, since I wouldn’t give him mine.
