    You got me, looks like a good concept but I wonder if it works.

    It kinda sucks that they marketed it to MTV viewers. I've taken a few marketing classes and I think it's safe to say they missed the mark. I also wonder how well it works. I looks like it's either really heavy or really flimsy. I think I'll stick to my metal one for now. Plus it looks more like a hard rake (which is great for sticks), but I spend way more time with the soft rake. (not sure if the terminology is correct, hard/soft, but that's what I call it)

    I bought rakes like that from Home Depot, they suck. Cheap plastic rakes are the best for leaves and thatch.

    If they run a promotion like "buy five rakes, get three of our girls for free" I will invest!

    Another useless contraption. they will charge much more just for the contraption, and it will still wear out in a shorter time than standard rakes. Then you are stuck with the mechanism part with no use for it.
    I've got a better idea than that, and is going to patent right now as we speak.
    It is a rake...looks like a normal rake, but when and if it gets leaves stuck in it, it allows you to flip it over and rub the back of the rake on the ground - pulling all the debris out of the tines. Quite a concept, huh?

    the site is good, the girls are hot, but i second the motion that it is for someone who does not know how to properly use a rake, flipping it and rubbing the back of it on the ground is the oldest trick in the book, and if you cant do that you need to order one of those things for sure. I do like the girls though, makes me wonder if I need some Trenchblade girls.... huuumm
