Furminator ruins coat?

I remember reading somewhere (here?) that some people think the Furminator tool damages the coat. Yet so many people swear by it and say it doesn't. What's your experience?

We use and love it. I've used it for YEARS. I've tried every grooming tool in the book and the furminator is hands down superior for a shedding dog. The "pin brush" - I assume they mean slicker since a pin brush wouldn't do squat on a GSD - is no where near as efficient as a furminator.
I use it once a week. i use it for about 15 min on each dog. and i stop just because...the fur is still coming off, but im just burned out after 15 min on each dog ( i have 2).

no damage that i can see, but i could see if i never stopped, and the fur just kept coming how it could be overboard...
I feel your pain. After awhile you're just tired of brushing!
