Before using this product I tried using a plug-in electric pump from an air mattress I have to inflate my 2-person 14.5 foot kayak, but it wasn't powerful enough to fully inflate it (it wouldn't even get all the wrinkles out of the rubber). After about 1/2 hour of using the electric pump continuously and not get any more air in I finally gave up and went to the Walmart store to get this hand pump (it was $9.45 at the store). I wasn't very optimistic though since it was so cheap and the hose looked a bit flimsy and weak. But then I tried it and Oh my gosh! it was AWESOME. It got my kayak totally inflated, completely firm and no wrinkles, IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES!!! It took only about 110 pumps to get the whole thing rock firm.
The only flaw that I found was that the nozzle adapters did not fit in my kayak's Boston valves so I had to file the one of the adapters down a bit until it fit, but no big deal.
I Would totally recommend this pump for inflating big boats, pools, beach toys, mattresses, etc.
