I'd love to know if any of you are pleased with yours...the reviews of ones I've seen online seem hit and miss. Multiple lines would be great, but not if the quality is sacrificed. It doesn't have to be long...I've got a small patio. If you know where you got yours, I'd love the info. Thanks!

We have a cheapie from Wal*Mart works good for us it seems a lil clumsy at times (you have to wrap the line around a hook on the retractable part and if you dont get it exactly right it will come off and the line will sag but I dont care if it sags aslong as my dipes get dry ; we use ours in our kitchen and I think it will go a lot farther than that so maybe if it were pulled full length it would sag .. idk??

I have the walmart cheapie in the laundry room in the basement. I always have something on it, and it has held up fine. The down side is that it only reaches like 9 feet. We bought one online and haven't gotten it hung yet. It will be in our back yard.

I got a cheap, but really long one (40') from Amazon. It's made by Crawford-Lehigh, I think, and it only cost $11.00. I just leave it out on my large deck all the time, and so far so good (I don't retract it cos, it's just easier for vertically challenged 5' tall me to not have to string it first). It still looks like new. It does sag a little when I hang blankets, but those are heavy, and it does keep them off the floor, which is all I care. I am quite pleased with it.
