I was a bit hesitant at first and had a hard time deciding between this and the field holder, I’m glad I went with this one. This is very heavy, and high quality like all of the Shapton glass products I have used so far. Works exactly as intended, fits the glass stones perfectly, and raises them to a comfortable height, while keeping very stable due to the weight and rubberized surfaces. As a bonus I’ve noticed it also fits the Atoma 210X70mm diamond plate perfectly. Finally, as I’ve come to expect, Paul’s shipping times and customer service are top notch.
