Strengths: Quick inflation when placed on correctly. Semi-comfortable pumping handle, though I bet the T-handles would be easier to pump with. Lifetime warranty, had a broken depressor tip and they replaced with out any hassle. Compeletely rebuildable. Strong pump housing.
Weaknesses: Can be a hassle to create a secure fit. You need muscle to inflate a flat, about 50-60 strokes. Flimsy attach clip, weak depressor point
If you can spare a few more buck I'd get the Mammoth CF or the Mammoth (wasn't availible when I bought this pump) as both have a easier pumping handle, but for $5 you can't beat the quality along with a lifetime warranty.
