Overall I am pretty happy with this. I bought it to go on the butt end of the sweetwood crook, so as to have a neck and a leg hook on the same tool.
Suffice it to say that it works, I can hook the read leg with a little less effort than hooking a neck.
The cons are that it really doesn't fit snuggly on this crook. It rocks back and forth because it's opening is wider than the crook I bought to put it on. I guess that's no one's fault, nowhere does it say that it was especially designed for this particular crook.
And despite the rocking, it does work, but I believe that, after a lot of use, this rocking is going to take its toll.

I ordered this crook head a year ago. I worked wonderfully. BUT....The last time I used it, the actual hook broke off! I don't mean the shaft broke off in the head. I mean the hook broke clean off where it meets the collar that goes around the shaft. I don't know if the entire piece is cast, or if it is welded, but it appears to be a weak spot. I only have 7 sheep and have used the crook no more than 20 times (catching for shearing and then at lamb weaning). The crook was even stored inside shelter. Basically, it had no abuse and was used far less than I would assume it is designed for. I am rather disappointed.

An excellent additional tool, worth the cost!

Works as intended. I have one on the end of a length of PVC pipe and once you nab them, they are easy to grab. Getting them at the rear hock keeps them off balance enough that they can't do much to resist and there is little risk of injury.

this crook works ! no more sheep running around you trying to get loose.. once you hook them they are yours. Just don't lay it down and let it get lost! hang it in the barn have a bright color for the handle.
