Smile Whats the difference?? carrot stick vs. handy stick vs. generic

Okay so what's the real difference between Clinton's handy sticket and Pat's Carrot stick other than 50 cents;) I have the one from rods (its what I call generic I guess) I mean I paid $13 for it and absolutley love it. I have had the chance to work with the Handy stick but not the carrot. Whats you opinions? Here's all 3 websites

The price. Yes, that's the only difference.

Smart girl! You're much smarter than some of the adults who think they MUST pay those crazy prices for the magickal sticks.

The difference is who makes them, how they're made, how they are marketed or sold and price. One may be more flexible and not break as easy. Some might not have a string that comes off. Other than that they are really the same.

Yeah the handy stick works good but it's the exact same as rods other than it being "brand name". It does the same job either way.

Have you seen that now Clinton Anderson is marketing round pens? I saw it for the first time last weekend on his show. I don't buy any of his stuff. I either make my own or buy a generic version of it for a WAY less. Not sure what they are asking for the round pen, but I bet my 60 ft pen was a 1/3 of his

Bhahaha your kidding right! Wow I wonder what's so special?! Other than nothing. I'm sure each panel is probably $1000. I got mine from tractor supply and probably paid little over $1000

I looked up the round pen and according to their FB page the starting at 5000 for non members and 4000 for nwc but it didnt say how big it was just said the panels were 6ft tall.
