Rugged Indeed

I’m very pleased with the quality and feel of this Rugged Rosary. This is now my go to primary Rosary.
Thank You so much for making a Rosary that will last hopefully forever. I have owned many Rosary’s that have broken, and some that are beautiful but not strong enough for me to bring everywhere. Glad to have this one in my pocket.

Excellent Rugged Pocketable Rosary

I am very pleased with my Bold Unbreakable St. Benedict rosary. It is heavy which grounds me when praying, and while it looks bold it is not ostentatious.

I started praying the rosary with the $5 "The + Living Simply + Catholic Wood Rosary" offered by Rugged Rosaries a few months ago. While this little wood rosary is of amazing value for the money, I wanted something that felt less fragile, but still afforded portability. The Bold Unbreakable St. Benedict Paracord Rosary was exactly what I was looking for. The sliding beads in this design are a very different experience than rosaries with knots around the Our Father beads, but I have grown fond of this motion as I pray, and I find it very satisfying.

Initially I read some reviews and comments on the Bold Unbreakable St. Benedict Rosary, and the two main points that were usually brought up were:

1) the crucifix is too small; and,
2) the Our Father beads are too similar to the Hail Mary beads.

I can understand both of this points, and they are valid observations.

I will defend that by having a smaller cross on this portable rugged rosary, it allows it to be much more pocketable. So, in this regard, I find value in having this smaller crucifix, which is beautifully crafted.

Regarding the Our Father beads, I agree that they take a while to get used to, and if you are praying in the dark, they can be hard to identify by touch alone (specially using only one hand). While I think opting for much larger beads, or tying knots around the Our Father beads would would be detrimental to this rosary's style and form factor, I would suggest that the RR team could offer an option to replace the smooth Our Father beads with more textured plastic beads.

I thank the RR team for this amazing product, and I hope my review provides some insights to prospective buyers.

Best Smallest Pocket Rosary

I’ve been wanting a smaller St Benedict rosary to carry over my RR fullsize one. I requested if they could do this for me. The RR team is amazing! I love this small pocket rosary, the weight of the steel beads reminds me that it is there. This is pictured next to my full size KofC RR rosary.
