For as simple as something like this is there are two major pros to this particular starter.
Price: $3 is much more affordable than the $10 REI one. Considering there really is no quality difference, that should sell you upfront. The other pro is that the striking stick is saw edged the full length of the stick. I've seen starters where it's just on the tip, and this is a small but major benefit.
