The jumbo heirloom claw in tortoise checker is as stunning in person as in the photos online. I have really long, thick hair and it is able to hold it all up in a variety of different ways without any issues. The teeth are strong, yet gentle and unlike other brands, this one doesn't have any sharp edges that can accidentally cut you when clipping in, and it also doesn't seem to pull my hair and cause discomfort or headaches after wearing for long periods like other brands. The spring tension is very tight and sturdy and has a good feel when clipping in. Overall I am very happy with it and am already thinking about buying more colors!
