I've got an Easy Walk, and don't like it at all. I actually bought it for my sister, but she didn't use it..so I took it back. I've tried it on three dogs (definitely the right size for two of them..POSSIBLY a little big for Cherokee), fitted it all different ways, and it didn't work on any of them. I hate the loopy martingale thing. It seems to just make it slip around and not fit right.
Cherokee's not a big puller in normal situations, and "be a tree" works wonders if she happens to forget. In dog-filled situations, she gets a little nutty and forgets not to pull, but I don't see a no-pull harness working terribly well for that anyway. We use a head collar sometimes, and a normal harness other times.
I walked my aunt's dog on a Sporn. Didn't like that at all either. Jack still pulled like crazy, he just seemed to be injuring himself. Although my aunt had it really really tight on him (I actually loosened it when she wasn't looking..shh), so maybe that was it? Or maybe it's supposed to be that tight, I dunno.
I'd buy the Halti if I was gonna buy another one. I like the fronts of that and the Sense-ation better than the EW because of the loopy thing, and since the Halti also has a ring for the leash on the back, it just seems like a multi-tasker, more bang for the buck if you will.
