The CobraHead® Long Handle weighs about 2.4 pounds and comes in three (3) handle lengths of 48"*, 54" and 60" (inches). The blade assembly adds 8" to the length, so the overall tool lengths are 56" (48" handle), 62" (54" handle), and 68" (60" handle).
Gardeners under 5' 2" may prefer the 48" handle.*
The 54" handle (62" overall) is typical and recommended for most gardeners.
Gardeners over 6' 2" may prefer the 60" handle.
Please note: handle length choices are subjective to individual users.
"The CobraHead Long Handle arrived... as you promised, I love it. I see what you meant about the handle's being special--this is a very well-engineered tool, a rarity in today's world--and should last for years, but by making the blade replaceable, you have provided for any future problem. Your Product Info and dissertation on gardening were superb. My favorite garden tool of recent years (an oscillating hoe) has just been retired. I could never understand why only one edge of that was sharpened. The CobraHead does a better job of "scalping" and so many other things in addition." Carol Isaacs Orange, Connecticut
