The longer model is great for making a quick pass through the garden to do spot weeding. It will also do full weeding, but spot weeding is where it shines. I mulch my beds, and a regular hoe will also pull the mulch back, exposing the soil underneath. This creates more space for weeds to grow. With the long-handled CobraHead, I can simply flick the weeds out from under the mulch without disturbing it a lot. The weeder is used with a motion exactly like sweeping with a broom (a regular broom and not a push broom). As you sweep back toward your body, the blade goes under the weed and cuts it off. Once you get a feel for it, very little effort is needed. The weeder does the work! Good tools are an essential part of any gardener’s shed. While there are lots of great tools and tool makers out there, the ones above have become staples in my rose tool kit. They offer me quality at a price I’m happy with. Plus, they leave more funds for plants! Happy roseing, Paul
