I've been happy with this faucet - it's a smaller-scale, and provides a pull-out in a single-handle faucet, which is what I wanted. I too had the difficulty with the sprayer being hard to pull out. I applied some silicone lubricant to the metal hose and it slides in and out much more easily, with less stress on the faucet body itself.
