I am particularly interested in long-lasting pegs that do not degrade over time either by becoming brittle or rusting. While they are yet to stand the test of time, I have read comments elsewhere on the internet by other concerning peg users that longevity is a key strength of these pegs. At this stage, I do like the general "feel" of the pegs - despite of the strength of the spring, the peg arms provide sufficient "leverage" to enable effortless handling. They have a good clamping strength, with the large hole good for everyday hanging, while the tighter small hole is sufficiently strong to hold extra heavy clothes or clothes with strong winds blowing. The colour of the pegs is intense and hence pleasing - I hate pastel colours! Hopefully it will not fade over time.
