Any FURminator believers out there before I reconsider my (hefty) purchase? Certainly don't want to damage his top coat or skin...

Furminators are not for golden retrievers. They will strip the top coat and can be really damaging.

The rake is very easy and goes though the coat like a comb and takes out the dead undercoat.

For that price I would return it get a comb and put the 60 towards a forced air dryer.

I was a furminator believer, but I stopped using it. I just wanted to see how the coat was without it. But the company itself has other good products. Their rake, slicker brush, pin brush, finishing comb and curry comb are use daily around here. They all take out tremendous amounts of dead undercoat and leave my Sandy's hair looking clean and smooth. She loves them. I haven't used the de-shedding tool in a couple of months and her hair is looking so much better with only the combs and brushes.
Here they are....with the spray I use twice a week to keep her smelling good.

The furminator rake is on the far left in my picture, but there are many types of rakes. I like the furminator one because the tines spin and it really takes out a lot.

The furminator rake is NOT the same as the furminator de-shedding tool that everyone hates. The rake is in my photo on the left and it really is a good rake. I never used the Oster rake, but it looks a little scary and the furminator RAKE is a little cheaper and the bristles are very soft compared to other rakes I have used.

I'm aware you were talking about the rake, nevertheless, I've seen better results out of the jw rake and even more out of the oater rake

As I said, I've never used the Oster rake (or the JW rake), so I wouldn't know how much better they are. The JW rake looks a lot like the one I use so I'm not sure what the difference would be and the furminator rake gets great results. Why switch?

The Oster looks too much like a back scratcher, so not sure if I will ever get one.

I think that the furminator brand is getting a bad rap because of the original de-shedding tool. But I get great results from and would recommend the other tools.
