dribbles and bits
While this thief can do its job, more or less, I found it frustrating to use. Mine tends to dribble, and the volume is so low that it takes quite awhile to get enough liquid to do a hydrometer reading. I'm used to pipettes in the lab, which drip only if I'm using them incorrectly, so maybe I'm spoiled...

Great for the price
While this doesn't work for the smaller batches that are in the 5 or 6 gallon carboys, if it reaches, it's worth the price. Super easy to snag a sample, and even easier to clean.

Does the job with minimum effort, and its easy to clean afterwards.

It's not as wide as the plastics one
It's not as big as the plastic one but it still works.

Does the job

Simple, Well suited to sampling
While it's a pretty simple device, this glass rod is shaped at the end to allow the user to hold it between your fore and middle fingers as if holding an aspirating syringe. Simply dip the business-end of the rod into the fluid you with to sample and plug the hole with your thumb and draw out your sample,... nothin' to it.

Really does the trick.
This really makes it easy to take samples, especially for narrow necked carboys. Super easy to clean too.

A little small
It works fine for what it is, but for me it is too small to get a good sample for measuring.

Works better than the plastic one
This is the first one I bought. I was very happy with it until it rolled off the counter and shattered on the floor.

Well designed.
I really like the way this thief is designed. It's size and shape fit the hand well and fits into all my narrow necked carboys easily.
