In a nutshell

A light, metal gun this has seven different spray patterns and a simple flow adjuster but the trigger lock is tricky and it feels flimsy.

Is the Verve Metal 7 Function Spray Gun comfortable to use?

Despite being metal this is a light, comfortable gun with finger grips on the trigger and a rubber coating on the handle.

What is the Verve Metal 7 Function Spray Gun like to use?

This is an easy to-use spray gun with a comfortable trigger handle, but this locks at the base and it takes two hands to click it on. It's easy to accurately control the rate of water by simply twisting the flow control button. The smooth dial clicks in to place as you switch between the seven spray patterns and these include a mist, a jet and a shower pattern. There are no leaks or drips between patterns but pressure is poor and weak for all seven sprays.

Is the Verve Metal 7 Function Spray Gun built to last?

Made from metal and brass with a brass connector, this feels built to last. However, it's so light we wonder if it will last more than one gardening season.

Is the Verve Metal 7 Function Spray Gun good value for money?

At less than £11 and with its metal construction and seven patterns this feels good value, but with no warranty and a potentially flimsy construction it might be worth paying more for something longer lasting.
