- Junk until they fix the plastic design Review by MacSuibhne
Quality Price Value
Got my girlfriend one of these after a friend picked one up. I liked the look and the adjustability of the thing along with the Easton brand name on it - "hard to go wrong with Easton" was the thinking. Normally that would be correct, but in the case of this V-bar it just plain is not worth looking at.
If I had waited a little longer I would have found out from my friend that the thing breaks with normal use within a few months. His one broke at the plastic fixings, and then very shortly afterwards my girlfriends one broke in the same way.
This really is a terrible shame as the plastic is the only thing holding it back. It really is well made and finished everywhere else as one would expect from Easton aluminium.
For an acceptable adjustable v-bar it would have been 4/5 for price and value when compared to the likes of and AGF bar. However, it will only end up breaking at an inappropriate time (mid shot in competition) or when you want to use the adjustment to try something new or set things just right.

- Would not buy again Review by chris
Price Value Quality
The plastic inserts that are supposed to lock the arms in place sheared off within a few months. Not a rugged design. For me it comes down to writing these off as a loss and finding a better setup. Unfortunate, but that's the case for this item.
If they had made the inserts out of metal (or machined the teeth into the design) this probably could have been a good lightweight option.

- OKish Review by potnoodles
Price Value Quality
I've had this v bar for around 6 months and have found it not to be the best out there, especially at this price. My one sheared the interlocking plastic that is supposed to limit movement, i don't know whether this was because i overtightened it or something, but the only solution I've found is the set that section with resin(Araldite). Needles to say, it is no longer adjustable. I would choose a fixed model or the B-Stinger V bar
