When it gets really windy the thing starts spinning around too crazy, but when its that windy its usually a great day anyhow. also the "silent tether" will break, not really a defect just wear and tear, but I recommend ordering a couple spares. All in all I still am very happy with it. In low, medium and high wind it works great, when the wind gets above 20mph the blade spins and then starts rotating around in a circle as well, sometimes hitting the pole or the other blade(I have the 2 blade version). I either take of one of the blades off or pull the thing. I tried to make my own but it didn't come out as good as theirs no matter what I did. Valuable product for the price, lightweight, easy to set up, and good quality.
You don't have to "order" new tethers, just buy women's hair ties. They come like 20 to a cardboard thing for like 99 cents. About the wind, if its like 30 mph, either just use one per stick or put them away and put out a "winduk". For like 10-20 mph, use another hair tie and attach a weight on the bottom, that will hold them down then flying around like a maniac when using 2 blades
They work great, easy to use and haul around!
