FP, I got one, used it several times, and I do NOT recommend it. Doesn't matter how close to the root you try to cut the look is still VERY different from the pulled mane. Plus it grows back in an ugly way (so my paint's mane looks much worse now, doesn't want to stay on one side even after the braiding, etc.).
When you plan to pull first work your horse off really good (so it'd be all warm, or even sweating), and then pull with the (cheap) pulling comb right after that. It pulls like a charm!
