Purchased the 30" Hookaroon December 2020 and have been extremely happy with it. Something I should have bought a long time ago as it makes moving firewood so much easier. Three days ago, the tip broke, must have been a super small gap in the weld or maybe it started to separate with use because there is rust inside the weld. At any rate, placed an order for a replacement tip (actually 2 tips to have one around as a spare), shipped first thing the next morning received 2 days later and already installed and ready to split wood again. After the tip broke, I realized how much of a pain it is to bend over to pick up from the ground, with the hookaroon it is so much easier and saves the back! I really like this tool and would be 5 stars across the board if the tip hadn't broke.

Awesome tool, makes handling wood for splitting so much easier. After getting it I spent about 10 mins just playing around getting a feel for it, I should have bought one sooner. Way easier on my back

Pros: Highest quality
Cons: A bit expensive
I bought the 30" hookaroon a couple years ago and had to grind the sides of the points flatter so it would stick in the blocks, I see they now come with a flat sided point. I feel this tool is well built and will last a very long time however it is a little expensive.

Pros: Works very well, is light and efficient
Cons: Handle cross-section could be improved if made in an oval shape
This tool is absolutely fantastic. I have used it to pick up wood off the ground and can attest that it is definitely a back saver. It is light, easy to use, and works very well. The black rubber handle is longer than is pictured in the photo. Mine measures 15 3/4", which not only provides a good no-slip grip, but is great for using the tool in cold weather. My only complaint, and I hope the Logrite folks read this, is that the handle cross-section is round. As such, it does not index in the hand when initially grasped (i.e., you'll have to check to make sure it's pointed correctly before use). My suggestion is to flatten the grip area of the shaft slightly to create an oval shape. This would make the tool substantially more efficient. Many thanks to Logrite for making this fine product.

I love my Logrite hookaroon! On two separate occasions I have had professional sawyers give their impressions of this tool. They both admitted they had seen them and never thought much of them. After each days work they exclaimed that they were without a doubt going to get one.
