Rated 3 out of 5Â by jap01886 Very poor shears
I bought these shears to replace some faithful ones that I had had for over twenty five years as they looked virtually the same with similar features. Initially they were very good but this was only to last a very short time. The nut in the middle seemed to work loose and if you tightened it, the blades slipped and didn't meet. It didn't matter how hard I tried to try and tighten the nut and align the blade they worked loose again. Not very impressed and the quality is very poor. I admit I use my shears quite a lot during the gardening season but these are certainly not up to the type of gardening use that I am used to. I was very disappointed. I would imagine if you use them a minimal amount of time per annum they will last a long time, but the build quality isn't for the serious gardener. I suppose the price reflects that!

Not being used to the system of ordering and unable to find what I wanted the staff at Team Valley were great and they made the purchase very easy. The Telescopic Shears are excellent for the price and I would recommend them to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 Lasted about an hour
I bought these to trim some hedges.
The thickness of what I was cutting varied some thin some thick.
After 20-30 minutes they started to feel a bit dodgy. The thing that stops them from closing too far had already broke.
At around an hour the handle came loose and actually was breaking off. I really was not forcing it so very disappointed at the quality.
I drove right back and returned them.
Nothing good to say about them.
