These really are the BEST clotheslines ever. I had the extra large giant size one for several years, but due to a mishap with the raised cap lid on the back of a pickup truck, it got damaged beyond salvage. (I noticed a similar comment from another customer whose clothesline tangled with a tractor, so I'm glad I'm not the only one ---- but be advised, these are BIG clotheslines and you do need to be careful when maneuvering large vehicles anywhere near them not to inadvertently get a line snagged on some protruding part of the equipment.)
I opted to replace my original large line with the "average" sized one. Having owned both sizes of the clothesline, I can attest to the quality and usefulness of both models. If you do lots of laundry and have the space to accommodate it, I definitely recommend the extra large one. As I've gotten older and less flexible (and shorter, doggone it anyway), the smaller (average) size is a better choice for me now. Buy this clothesline. You won't regret it. And the super fast free shipping is a nice touch, too.
