Horrified when I saw the new packaging/product in the guitar shop today. Bought a new one for a friend as my current ‘vintage’ one is still going strong nearly 20 years. This one doesn’t look like it would last a month. Plastic everywhere now which is terrible for the environment, old one had none. And there’s no paper around the juice so it all comes out the sides when using it. I will not be buying again until you bring the metal tin and wooden applicator back. You want to save money? I’ll be saving mine from your piss-poor product.

Hey there! Log time user here.

I can generally understand every explanation here that aims to clear the air with all the downgrade but I still feel that this is a huge bummer. The packaging is really something that I could not care less. Whether it is in a metal can or plastic, I don't care. But what I do care about is the actual product. The carelessness on the whole issue is just unbelievable as you literally changed the packaging and the product but could not spend an additional 5 minutes to review what is written on the package. It says "Do not peel back protective paper wrapping". Let me tell you, that "protective paper wrapping" is not on the brush anymore. You decided to remove it, to let it dry out faster, thinking that would generate sales I guess but did not care to remove the warning about it? 

This thing was my favourite gear of all but the thing that I buy it and in a week or two it is completely unusable is generally the saddest thing.

Wow... I just noticed many other negative comments about the "NEW" FastFret.  Bring back the dependable applicator.

I have been using FastFret for many years.  Over the past month I have purchased "2" from Musicians Friend.  The first arrived and I opened the container.  The item was in multiple pieces ‍♂️. Musicians Friend provided a replacement.  Unfortunately, the replacement also fell apart the first time I used it. The lubrication cake fell off the handle and this one is unusable as well. Looks like I will need to find a new product.  After many years of using FastFret, I just can't deal with constantly returning the item whether on line or at a box store.

as an avid Fast fret user, I have used multiple and they do not do that to me, it is possibly who you are buying it from or how it is being shipped. I am very sorry for what you have encountered.

Another fan of the "old" Fast Fret here! Current package does not stand up favorably.
