Dymondback Reviews

I did over 100 head on my first one then got another. From very soft feet to some so hard I bent the handles on my GE nippers,the rasp worked great. And mud and manure will not stop it.

Best Rasp Ever!!!! I just did 20 horses and it works like a hot knife cutting through butter!

I love this rasp! I saw this at the farrier supply, and was curious. So I bought one, the medium. It is by far the best rasp I have ever used. It's lightweight, required fewer passes over the hoof with less pressure, and makes work so much easier. It takes getting used to not being able to flip it over, and I do have to keep a regular rasp handy for finishing, but it is well worth it.

This sucker is the greatest thing since the nail was invented! I've been using mine since early April. I did clean it out well yesterday with a size 12 nail from the back side. Then gave it a light spray of silicone! Rasps really well!!

Been using mine since Meader's Spring clinic daily. Damn good rasp

To anyone sitting on the fence like I was, buy this rasp! I am a female owner/trimmer and I love trimming except for the toll it takes on my hands and wrists. This rasp is extremely light, very efficient and takes much of the hand and wrist strain out of the equation. It makes the process so much more enjoyable. Awesome product! I will be a lifetime customer now.

The Cody James Dymondback is different than any rasp I've used in my 40+ year shoeing career.
I picked up a Medium and Fine Dymondback at the American Farriers Association Convention, Farrier Industry Association MarketPlace from Canoga Farrier Supply. There are literally hundreds of new products introduced at the FIA MarketPlace and I'm always skeptical of their claims until I use them for myself. There were no outrageous claims made about the Dymondback, it proved itself the very first day I put it to use on a very muddy March morning when we were trimming Thoroughbred broodmares, with no clogging issues I was sold, and the performance we've experienced since has only made me a bigger fan. The design allows the most ergonomic use of your body while removing hoof material very efficiently.
I have used the medium on over 250 horses and it is still cutting quite well. The fine I have used on about 75 horses and it is still like new! You will appreciate the efficiency of this rasp on extremely hard feet, removing hoof with minimal effort. The medium cut leaves the foot a bit roughed up but is an excellent prep for casting or gluing on shoes. Its lightweight design may take a few horses to get use to, but it works extremely well one handed and is great for muddy feet as the blade does not clog. You will appreciate it even more when you go back to a regular rasp. It is SHARP and the manufacturer recommends using gloves, so do I, your knuckles will thank you. HoofPros

Undoubtedly the nicest rasp I've used. Love the dimensions and the feel of it. Great tool.

Barney Traylor on Apr 24, 2017
I am not pro trimmer but the best rasp I have ever used

Thomas Ruth on Apr 22, 2017
To all the farrier on here I love this rasp i have over 265 horses on mine and still going strong

Chance Stirlen on Apr 17, 2017
Best rasp ever made! I have only done about 20 horses so far with it. It has made the work so much faster and easier

Roland Hinojosa on Apr 10, 2017
I love the rasp I bought it is well worth the money I've done 30 horses with it and it's still sharp love a good investment for any shoer out there.

Justin Tom on Apr 05, 2017
Just bought one and it's well worth the money! Makes my job a heck of a lot easier!

Chad Osborne on Mar 31, 2017
Alright everyone, I am kicking myself in the but for not trying this rasp last year, I just picked one up the other day, and all I can say is it cuts hoof fast, it's light weight, you can 1 hand if you half too, its definitely a game changer, were talking more horses, or just less wear n tear on your body. I have been useing the 17 inch Save Edge Beast, for the past 7 years, and haven't seen anything better until now. I do lots of Draft horses, and its night and day with this new rasp. They recommend you start with the medium, but I jumped in with the most aggressive cut, and after the first hoof you will have it figured out, light pressure. I have been shoeing for 23 years, this is going to be my new rasp, dont get me wrong you will still need you're regular rasp if your concerned about a smooth finish. Other than that its awsome.

Caleb Norris on Mar 19, 2017
Just trimmed my first horse with this rasp amazing I have been shoeing for 17 years and this is the best rasp I have ever used nothing clogs it up

Sonny Garguilo on Mar 15, 2017
Aa a professional horseman that also trims 14 horses, I will never buy a rasp again
I have one Cody and have done at least 30 trims already and still sharp
BTW
They aren't a sponsor just a great product!
Really is what it claims to be!

Mike Marquis on Mar 11, 2017
I just got through using my new Medium Rasp. 3 days of hard use in SW Florida. It never clogged and was much easier to rasp than I originally thought! A must have for farriers in florida that have muddy or dry hard feet! Thanks again!

Blake Grant on Mar 03, 2017
First day with my new dymondback rasp (med). I Absolutely love it! If it only gets half the horses people claim, it is well worth the money.

Paddy Doyle on Feb 21, 2017
I purchased my Dymondback at the Summit . Over 100 head of horses and still going strong. It's the best innovative product I've seen in 32 years of shoeing horses.

Thomas Ruth on Feb 14, 2017
Best rasp I ever had. I will never go back to the old rasp. I figured it out I trimmed 10 horses and shod 5 and I timed myself I got the work done faster. It does not even feel like I used it

Tommy on Feb 14, 2017
I won't switch back. Thanks Cody James tools for putting money back in my pocket great product

Cody Havemann on Feb 13, 2017
Bought my rasp about a month ago, I am very pleased with the amount of horses I was able to get done with it. I was able to get 3 weeks with my first rasp. I usually get 30-50 horses done in a week. I am very pleased with this product and am anxiously awaiting the new blade to get here.

Steve Hubbard on Feb 03, 2017
Very effective rasp, I am a standardbred harness horse shoer. Level and angles are must and this rasp makes the leveling so much easier with less motion. Easier on elbows and shoulders.

Mark Funk on Jan 30, 2017
I'm using the diamondback . It's an awesome blade, it stays super sharp even after 70 head...I will never go back to a conventional rasp...new technology making the world a Better place one horse at a time...thank you Cody James tools

BG Barteld on Jan 18, 2017
I'm a 2nd Generation farrier and I've been at it for over 27 years now. My father did it for 30 years before me. After being rear ended and totaling my truck I required surgery on my arm, preventing my ability to continue with the large number of daily horses. This rasp is the only rasp I'm ever going to use again. Allowing a much easier all around experience during the trimming process. If this rasp were around when my father was, he might have been an active farrier beyond his 30 years.

Sara Allin on Jan 13, 2017
I currently have 58 horses on the medium blade. I've not been playing nice with it either. Lots of muddy feet, casting tape removal and even some modifications on composite shoes. Today was the first day I felt like it was slowing down, not by much though, just enough to notice. Still has lots of life left in it. So far I've been beyond impressed

Al K. on Jan 13, 2017
I bought it with the medium blade and I love this thing. It's taken so much of the work out of getting a foot ready

Mark F on Jan 02, 2017
They are awesome ...I'm using one now and plan to order another one

Tim Shortell on Dec 20, 2016
This rasp is a great product. It's wide light weight design makes your foot prep effortless due to the very sharp cutting surface. Just a light amount of pressure as you move your rasp around the foot you'll be amazed at the efficiency of this tool. Less strokes with more hoof removal I wish I had kept track of the amount of horses I've shod with this rasp but I guarantee it's been more than 50 maybe 60 and it still has life in it.

Thomas Costello on Dec 19, 2016
This is the best rasp-blade I have ever used, I wish I could have been using this for years before it is going to save me loads of money :moneybag: by not going through a rasp every other day , didn't take me long to catch on !!!

Bruce McCuan on Dec 18, 2016
The easiest rasp I've ever used to get a horses foot level. Got 112-114 horsrs out of the first rasp I used. Would recommend medium for the first rasp and then you can go to the coarse if you'd like.

Michael on Dec 17, 2016
This is a game changer!! Never clogs with dirt or mud!! Still going strong after 50 + horses
