If there is going to be a consumer to get screwed it will be me. That is one reason I am so darn gun shy when it comes to electronics. At any rate, just as in the commercials, I am on the verge of developing carpal tunnel when I use this Roundup spray. Constantly pumping the trigger and it's stream is like that of a 75 year old man. So I put down more bucks to buy this version of Roundup in the pump up sprayer. Now I admit I'm not usually optimistic but I had high hopes. I did till the FIRST time I used it. After pumping and pressurizing the tank, I would pick it up by the handle I would hear all the air leaking out. Needless to say it just drips out. Now if I carry it around like a baby it works as it should. I think I was attracted to the new version by the logo "Pump 'n Go". Sounds a lot like me.
