    Yes when they work they work well. I had problems with the one I had because of all the compression on my engine. I did mod it that got rid of all the problems but couldn't get rid of the pawls from getting clogged with dust every time I was out and the thing not working. So stopped using it.

    Main problem with the design is when the spring works, it gets longer as basically there are more coils on top of the spring and there is not enough room inside the pull start for it to expand and basically it just breaks the pawl. If this doesn't happen to you then the pull start can be quite reliable except for the pull starter pawls jamming up with dust.
