Have used this on sheep, goats, and even llamas. Been very happy with these crooks, light weight and strong. Apparently there was a bad batch several years ago and a lot of the poor reviews are based on this batch.

Had this stick for about two hours and the the first time that it was used the crook
Came right off the end. If a 45lb lamb can do that then it will stand no chance against a full grown ewe. This is the first product that I have ever received from premier that I am completely dissatisfied with.

The first couple of these I bought wore like iron very good product. The next couple broke like straws????? Final verdict will be in this last order I don't know what was changed maybe a bad batch

I purchased a premier crook after owning a Colroy crook for 7-8 years. This crook did not last a year before the shaft splintered / bent in the middle like a noodle. So I purchased another Colroy crook 3-4 years ago and found that the newer ones had changed and were also thin wall fiberglass, weighing less and very similar to the premier crook. That 2nd one had the head came loose after about a year of use. Now I use the aluminum red coat hook which bent several times rather easily but it does bend back. Not so pretty but functional for 5-6 years so far. The premier crook, I repaired by mixing some epoxy and poured some down the shaft from the bottom and stuck a 3/8 fiberglass fence rod down inside. Then added more epoxy. It weighs a bit more but stiffened up the damage area, so it does work. The cheapened Colroy got the top of the shaft cut down 2 inches and I reattached the hook end and it makes a good walking stick.
The Colroy looks like it's been discontinued. Built to the original specs, they were well made and did last a while.

I found this crook was too lightweight for my Polypays, and didn't hold up, at least not in cold weather. Its light weight makes it faster for catching small lambs than a clunky hickory one, but if you're going to try to catch grown ewes, I'd recommend a heavier crook.
