Hello googel-ga,

As a *serious* flosser myself, I've always wanted to tackle one of
your questions, but this has been my first opportunity to do so.

In comparing the various flossing products, I'm struck by the

--Yours is the only one giving detailed instructions and time
factors...all the other sites just assume an ease of use for the

--Is the tensioner made of wood?  It looks to be on your site.  All
the others are plastic.

--This is more a comparision of websites, than actual products, but
that has a big impact, don't you think?  Anyway, the Walgreen's sites
look very professional.  I'm afraid the tensioner site does not, and
in many places, uses very awkward English.

--I would guess very few people would actually choose the tensioner
over the other products.  Why?  The other products generally have
multiple functions (flosser and tongue scraper), the tensioner does
not.  The others look easy to use, yours looks complicated. 
Walgreen's is a trusted source, but your site is an unknown business. 
Lastly, the word itself -- tensioner -- is not a pretty word, and
wouldn't attract many people, I would guess.

--As to which I would recommend, it's a bit of a toss up between the
three Walgreen's products, but I'd probably go with the combo
flosser-tongue scraper, since I use both functions.

Even though you promised "no clarifications", you have my permission
to go ahead and ask if you'd like more information on anything I've
said here.  Though I think your product still needs some work and
better marketing to be successful, I do admire your persistance, and
your clever use of Google Answers.

Good luck, googel-ga.
