To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Love these. This is my 2nd one like it. I did have a minor flaw on this one. The end patch is a large super strong sticker (so to speak). It didn’t get out on just perfectly centered so a small piece of the outer edge got folded under that adhesive. It did make a small tear in the outer glossy finish but it wasn’t enough to return it.
Wonderful for the first couple of months. The jury is still out on this for durability. It’s a very pricey pool toy and I bought it because the cheap noodles shed after only a short time. This won’t shed, it’s not an uncoated foam product. There is an odor that seems like it might be a plasticizer and when the odor is gone, the toy will become brittle and crack. There are end caps that are glued on and the glue doesn’t seem the be holding perfectly. If the seal fails, the tube will aspirate water
This noodle arrived in a timely fashion and was in a sturdy long box. The float performs as advertised. The ends seem like the only place that water could leach into the inner foam, but so far that has not been an issue as the ends remain sealed. The photos in the listing are accurate in color. The finish is easy to hold onto in the pool. However, the finish has kind of a tacky feel. Not bad, just different than my other noodles. All in all, this is a pretty good pool toy.
From the measurements I thought it would be bigger than the other pool noodles that I have bought of the same type from Costco. It is the exact same size. The ones from Costco or to 4 for 30, so $15 each. And I much prefer the colorful ones from Costco.
I haven't had this product to know how durable it is. I can say that I like the way it is made. I have to carry to and from the therapy pool and it is easy to dry off before stepping out into the winter cold and there is no water puddling in the car. The only con that I am giving it is that it would be better if it was about a foot longer.
