What is the Corona ComfortGel Weeder like?

This weeder has a sturdy, stainless steel head that is lightly curved for leverage. It’s wide at the top, tapering to a narrow, forked end and is sharply serrated on one side. The bright red handle has a finger guard at the base to protect the hand in use and the tang – the neck that connects the handle and the head, is reinforced and wide.

Is the Corona ComfortGel Weeder comfortable to use?

The soft gel handle is nonslip with great grip and sits comfortably in the hand, particularly when applying pressure to shift deep rooted weeds. It feels strong and capable, and the finger guard offers extra protection if needed.

Does the Corona ComfortGel Weeder perform well?

Well thought out this hard-working tool is robust enough to tackle any weeding job. The curved head gives good leverage to prise out stubborn weeds and the forked end helps it cut through the ground, even stony soil, with ease. The sharp serrated edge gives added strength and helps you cut through the soil and weed roots, however this is a tool for right handed gardeners. If you're left handed the serrated edge wouldn't work so well.

Is the Corona ComfortGel Weeder value for money?

A great all round weeder that will help with any weeding task, this well designed tool has extra features and comes with a lifetime warranty. We think it’s excellent value for money
