Recently I picked up the sport of curling and my mother decided to buy me a broom for Christmas. The clerk had recommended she buy a BalancePlus Fiberglass Broom because they were the best on the mark. Boy was he right!
The greatest feature of the broom is its ultra light design. The fiberglass makes the broom extremely lightweight which is a great feature since a single game can sometimes be over 3 hours. The handle itself is also tapered which helps prevent your hand from slipping when holding onto the broom. Another great feature is the flexible brush head. Since the brush head can swivel to a certain degree this allows the sweeper to sweep on either side of the rock. This feature is excellent when you are playing with new teammates or you are playing multiple games in a day.
The other great aspect of the broom is its cosmetic look. The sleek design and vibrant colors (they come in yellow, pink, orange, blue, etc...) makes you stand out on the curling rink.
Overall this product is great for a novice or expert curler. If they were looking for a broom that would last a long time, I would strongly recommend BalancePlus.
