This rosary is the finest for me that I've ever used. I have low vision, cannot manipulate the small beads of the jewelry type rosary...much less try to see the beads. (Prior to getting this rosary, I'd been reduced to saying the rosary on my fingers and trying, unsuccessfully, to keep track.) The beads on the paracord rosary are large and warm and smooth to touch. Even with my eyes closed, I can comfortably and accurately say the rosary prayers at the correct places. The weight of the rosary is comfortable both in my hands and resting on my lap. The beads have sufficient flexibility among them to easily move them in prayer. The rosary itself is strong and durable, yet completely soft and flexible to hold, no stiffness whatsover. The craftsmanship is masterful. This rosary is meant to last. The beads have a warm, golden vintage glow. That they also feel warm is a blessing to arthritic fingers for whom cold beads can feel harsh. For me, the rosary is even more beautiful in person than the photograph, although nice, depicts. I recommend this rosary as a rosary of first choice, whether people have a need for it because of military or handicapped or outdoor needs or not. It stands out as a high quality, durable and beautiful user friendly rosary in its own right. I received mine yesterday on Good Friday. So Good Friday was the first time I used it. On Easter Sunday after Mass I'll ask Father J. to bless it. I plan to get another of this rosary to keep in my purse. So I'll have one at home and one with me when I go out. And the customer service is wonderful! Prompt, caring, thoughtful and dedicated. I appreciate the holy cards they included too. I strongly recommend this company and this rosary. I will go to them for all my rosary needs.
TAKE NOTE: They are hefty, sturdy, military grade inspired, Rosary beads. First, you notice the large, bronze tone Holy Trinity Cross which is not often seen & very impressive. Next, you will notice the heavy duty, braided para cord in OD. The beards are large, antique gold tone w/ a built in crazing (not cracked) and it is accented w/ matte black beads on the 'Our Father' parts.
Ready for Spiritual Warfare? Want to be a Prayer Warrior? Then this is what you will need. You won't be disappointed I am sure. UNLESS of course, you want something real small, delicate, lightweight & tiny pocket size which these are NOT. They also make a GREAT gift to any Catholic gentleman who is ready to do spiritual 'combat.' So order yours today. You will be glad that you did. Peace to all who read this.
I ordered two rosaries from this vendor, one for me and one for my daughter. Both are beautiful works of art. They are also extraordinarily rugged. I cannot imagine them damaged in any way, especialy with the vendor's great warranty. They will be with us for a long time.
