   Think of it as an essential piece of sawmill safety equipment. When the point of the LogRite peavy or cant hook bites into the log it is either going to roll or the wood will give way first rather than slip which is what often happens with other brands. Trust me - you do not want your hook slipping when you are putting a lot of weight into turning a big heavy log.

I use a 60" logrite. I like the peavey over a cant hook because you can stick the point in the ground to stand it up vs leaning it on something or bending over to pick it up every time.

You can bet your (whatever) on the Logrite.  It will bite and you won't break a handle when all of you is behind it.  Best hands down.

I always get a kick out of the idea that people like a peavey for its ability not related to working it. Namely sticking in the ground. I can see the prying and levering advantages for those that need it, but I just never needed or desired a kickstand for my canthook. ;)

You know it is funny Jeff, I thought the same thing, but really needed the cant hook style so I got that. Now I find that I can usually stab that tip in the ground enough to make it stand anyway. So win-win. 8) 8)
 The nice thing about the cant hook style is that the dog end can catch right on the corner of most square cants, thereby minimizing any damage to the cant. Those cheapos have a sharp dog and I really hate finding the gouge it leaves in an otherwise perfect board.
The only question the OP really needs to answer is what style and what length does he need. I am loving my extreme duty 60" hook, but plan to add a 48" down the line.

I’ve tried the other ones, definitely get a Logrite. I have a 60” even though I don’t use it as much with the hydraulics I still need one with the mill. Thinking of adding a 48” to it. Mine are cant hooks.

I sort of thought the ability to stand it where it's handy for me to grab it when I need it was a valid use. I do also pry and use it to turn logs, but the fact that it's standing there within arms reach is what I like best. Somehow my cant hook always finds its way to the ground or I have to walk a few extra steps to lean it on something.

Kinda hard to jump logs with a cant hook. Don't listen to me, go to a log rolling contest. I worked a wooden log deck for years and turned logs on the carriage all day long would not agree with any of the above but I have never used a portable band mill either.

Logrite, peavy or cant hook, I have both (in 60"), I also have a 4' cant hook and a Monster one in 78" for the BIG logs. I prefer the cant hook but both do the job.

My son is into woodsman's competitions and says his Grandfathers 100 year old peavey made in Maine is the best as it has just the right ark on the hook to catch and release when you are rushing to roll a pine log.   It has won him some first places. He also prefers to use it when helping me on the sawmill.  I think the main factor is the fact that Grampie gave it to him and told him some if it's history before he passed.  As for me, I like the Logrite's and will usually grab that one first.

As far as the Peavey/Cant hook angle, I don't have anywhere handy to lean mine that it isn't in the way, I often use it to pry and leverage the end of a log to get it aligned with my mill, and I have hydraulics so I never need to turn a cant by hand. So it is Peavey, Peaveyn and Peavey for me😁 It's really just a matter of preference and difference in workflow, if I was turning cants on a mill bed I would say cant hook, because the peavey point gets in the way in that situation.

Well your height doesn't really have anything to do with it. The size of the logs or cants your are turning does. The lignite hook have different sized hooks for different diameter logs. Check their website I am pretty sure it gives size ranges. Pick one that matches your needs and your logs.

I don't have hydraulic log handling. Only power feed at this time. I keep a 60" peavey and a 48" cant hook by the mill. I just always seem to grab the peavey because it's always close. I've tried to stick the cant hook in the ground the same way, but the rocks/ hardpan I have here won't allow it. I operate my mill off the loading side with a remote so having the hook within arms reach really speeds things up. Just a step or 2 and the log/ cant is flipped, clamped, and back to sawing.

All joking aside I grew up with genuine Peavey's made "downstate" and that was all I knew existed.  Have had more than a few replacement handles made, discovered heads in the woods growing up, etc.  When it came time to replace one several years ago I went looking for what I knew and in the process came across Logrite.  I was hesitant to try something different, but trusted what I had heard here. 
Honestly other than a wall hanger to have in the mill shed I will never buy anything other than a genuine Logrite for working purposes, I use their scale sticks too as the quality of their products is absolutely superb.

I have no need whatsoever for a peavey so the old metal handled peavey is now a pry bar/cheater pipe.

I can't bend a std weight Logrite, no need for a heavy duty one. That being said, at one time Logrite had a sale on Woodmizer heavy duty 4' cant hook on sale, and I bought one. In use I far prefer the 5' std weight one, the HD one is heavier and I found it just not necessary.
I certainly would never want to tangle with the guy who can bend a std Logrite using only their own power, not some machine.

The bent Logrite I tried to straighten is sooooo much better than the hand-me-down with a hickory handle I have been using. Its hard to see how anyone could bend one. If my handle ever breaks I'm going with Logrite.

A quick jerk will do it.
I can still hear my Father say, pull steady on the handle. That way you won't break it off. 
He grew up, loading trucks with one, so I took it he knew.  ;)

Well I have been called a jerk, but I ain't never been called quick, so I guess that leaves me out.

When you purchase a logrite you also get a secret key to a club they're not allowed to advertise with it, that you can never talk about.. and in this club there are beautiful women serving free pints and meals, anything you've ever seen on a tap and a menu, and you visit as often as you like. 

I've never seen a logrite over here in NZ but that's all I can deduce from the way you guys carry on about it :D  :D.

I made one since I couldn't find one, sadly it seems I'll never know the truth  :'(.

Well now that you've broken our rules and given away nearly half of our secrets (fortunately the smaller ones) you may never be able to find one. :D
