But, with all fairness, I have not used the one you have mentioned in your post? Has anyone else purchased this one? Someone has to TOFTT, and report back.

I have used the New Rolling Chicken Stick. I live in Phoenix Arizona and have multiple 170cc Gas Engine airplanes. When I first got the Rolling Chicken Stick(RCS), I took the guys advice and practiced as I was one to use a paint roller before. This thing is awesome. It easily turned my Competition 3W 170 (High high compression engine) I run Beila or wood props, there is no damaging this prop with the RCS. I am a clinical Microbiologist by practice and need all my fingers. I would never hand prop any engine. The fact that stands alone is that for twenty some dollars, it's worth every finger. I tried to wear the thing out a couple weekends ago, it works flawlessly. I highly recommend this tool for anyone messing with paint rollers. IT JUST WORKS BETTER! I have a second on the way and a third one for a Christmas gift. I highly recommend this product.

I just ordered one also. I had a DLA 116 backfire on me and sliced two fingers from the back of the prop. That motor is gone now and my DA 120's are easy to hand start but I'm still gun shy.I figured for the price I'll try one out.

Is the silicone soft that touches the prop? I have a single that will bump back once in 300 flips if you flood it. With a paint roller the prop won't get damaged. Anything hard and there goes the prop

Look at the video and you will understand it will not happen if used the right way

The vinyl that is on the roller is very durable and should last longer than I would predict....but it is soft enough that if you hold the prop so it dosnt turn and hold the Chicken Stick roller so it dosnt turn and forcefully run the roller across the prop, the prop will cut into the vinyl (not deep) rather then damage the prop. No please don't do this, take my word for it. Just remember to use it like the video says....straight off the tip of the prop. Practice it a few times with the ignition off to get the feel for it. You should not have any "bump backs" with the prop...you put a lot more spinning force on the engine with this Chicken Stick.

Thank you all for ordering, I appreciate it. If anybody that purchases one of my ROLLING Chicken Sticks has any problem with it please write me a personal e-mail.
Thanks again everyone!
Richard

Richard, I see the larger #3 ones are out of stock. When will they be available?
Or will the others work fine?
I need another stocking stuffer

Those I wont be available till after the new year. All of the Grip Styles have the same 5 inch roller. The Grip Style #1 is fine for the big planes too. Go with that one.

Thanks in advance!

Looks like a great product. I do have to disagree with something you said, though. When a DLE kicks back, no start stick will prevent it. Either the prop or the stick will be damaged.

I definitely wont argue that point with you, but I have 2 DLE-170's and this Starting Stick spins them with authority. I have started my engines hundreds of times with this stick and never had it kick back with the Stick. I have had it kick back with a paint roller and a glove...but I truthfully say I have never had it happen with the ROLLING Chicken Stick.
