Got the new starter wand from Sullivan a few weeks ago. This one is MUCH better! They gave me no grief on the phone at all, just sent a replacement. Perhaps quality control could be better at the factory, but it seems they will make it right if there is a problem.AMA # 943111

flyin dan,

your experience is interesting - last year i had similar 'quality' issues. First the coating on the wand began to come off and clog the one-way bearing. Sullivan were very responsive and sent me a new wand. But the run-out was horrendous and the starter vibration was significant. Again, they sent me a new wand but it was as bad! Ironically they posted it across the atlantic in a padded envelope!

I just use the original now. I removed the coating with wet and dry where is interfaces with the one way bearing. Other than the odd 'slip' now and again, it performs just about acceptably. But they seem to have a 'quality' control problem. Given the cost of these components i'd expect much better.
