I bought this to augment a 15 year old SP-2 that has been my mainstay since I got it. The old one is still working fine, but if I lose it I now have a spare.
After 15 years, some of the plating has worn away but other than that, it's still good as new.
If you have big hands, this is the one to go for, IMO... much less tiring in a long playing session than a little slide like the Dunlop Ben Harper model.
Bottom line, the SP-2 has great balance and it never feels like I'm fighting it when things speed up. Highly, highly recommended.
