Easy to tighten, easy to create a very taught surface, holds tension well. If you don't use a stand, and hold the hoop in your hands while seeing, the extra weight of the screw mechanism can lead to some fatigue -- I just make sure to take breaks and stretch my hands.
This is a very effective basic working hoop.
Creates a very tight drum. My threads are less apt to get caught up in the tighteners.
