First time rosary buyer(Orlando, FL, January 22, 2009)
All in all I wasn't thoroughly impressed with this rosary OTHER than the actual cross itself. The beads are wooden but they feel like plastic and I think that is where my disappointment comes from. To me wooden beads should feel like wood and have a little bit of weight to them. All in all though I was content with the purchase as it was for an ex boyfriend who is experiencing some difficulty in his life. He loved it and thats all that matters. And for a mans rosary it isn't all that bad. Next time I purchase a rosary I will spend the little bit of extra $ to buy something of better quality. Best Uses: Gave as a gift; Cons: Beads feel like plastic, Low Quality; Pros: The cross is great
Good Quality Rosary

I was very pleased with this rosary, which appears to be black cocoa wood (therefore very lightweight). The joins are solid, and the scapular centerpiece is just perfect. The cross could have been a better quality, but the overall rosary is just beautiful. Should last for years. VERY PLEASED WITH THIS PURCHASE!!
