Pros: Fully adjustable in every way!
Cons: Didn't work for me - personal preference - purely because of the shape - the secondo model worked better for my shoulder. I also found it a bit fussy in terms of fitting my particular viola - a bit too much adjusting for me.
Other: I recommend that you compare the primo and secondo shapes carefully to work out what might work best for you in terms of comfort and usability.

Pros: I bought this for my son on his teacher's recommendation, and it has been a wonderful purchase. He was playing flat most of the time, but now his intonation has improved immensely, mostly because his hand is now in the correct position. He also tells me it is very comfortable to use.
Cons: So far, there is nothing not to like.

Pros: This is a straight forward, basic shuolder rest. There are no elastic bands required to keep it in place. So they can't break mid-performance. The height and width variablity of the rest is very good. There is over 2 inches (nearly 5 centimetres) variation on the height of the rest.
Cons: No obvious cons, but it isn;t absolutely clear which way round it should fit onto your instrument. I think this is a decision for the individual player.
Wrong size but it said universal adjustable size
Pros: Reasonably proced
Cons: As it universal size which would fit all viola size, it did not fit my daughters viola which was the disappointment. Her teacher asked us to keep it as she could use it when she get full size in the near future.
