This leash is durable, sturdy, and the only one I have had so far that has lasted through my Pit. She chews all of her stuff, and surprisingly doesn't mess with this! It's great when we take her on a run, as well. I like the flat design of the leash itself, where when it retracts, it doesn't get tangled inside the leash like others we have had. I am considering buying a medium sized one for my smaller pup, as well!

The implementation of the "trigger" on this leash is a problem. I bought the large size. Still, the handle is so small that to hold it properly you MUST have your index finger on the trigger. There is not room above it or to the side of it for an average adult male hand. I've had two problems with that. First, it's a little uncomfortable and inconvenient. Second, on a recent walk, when my dog lunged at another and I pulled him back, I accidentally released the trigger, the last thing I wanted to do at the time. This design doesn't work for me and I'm going to return the leash. I tried this as an alternative to the Flexi brand. I've had a few of those and the overall design is better if a bit more complicated. The weakness of the Flexi is the leash tape is very prone to nicks and cuts. Once it has one, it soon tears all the way through. Still, I think the Flexi, when intact, provides a better level of security and comfort.
UPDATE: 1/3/14 I didn't return the leash, I continued to use it. This frozen morning my dog pulled it out of my hand onto a gravel drive. The impact snapped off the little plastic part that holds the carabiner in place. Now that part of the handle is just flapping around. I'm going back to the Flexi brand and this thing is going into the car trunk as an emergency back-up.

This leash is really nicely constructed! The locking mechanism is very easy to control. The unit is a bit heavier than previous retractable leashes, but I do not mind that for because of the quality of the leash.

This leash is positively the best leash I have found. I have a rambunctious basset hound puppy. And you wouldn't believe how many leashes she has broke. This is sturdy yet light and has a easy locking mechanism. I love this leash.

Great leash if you want an easy way to attach the dog to your belt.
Like the alternative locking mechanism--easier on the thumb--but it takes some getting used to. You can lock it or unlock it. But you cannot do a "temporary" lock by just pressing the lock button. Never realized how much I used that feature on our Flexi leashes. Wanted an alternative to the thumb lock mechanism. I have arthritis in my hands and the other leashes are hard on thumb joints.
BUT..ask the people who make the "Saddlebags" that wrap around the Flexi leashes to make one that fits your leash. Those bags are perfect for carrying your own stash of bags at all times without thinking about it.

I bought two of the same size, I have a rather small mutt (little bigger than a Jack Russel Terrier) and a St. Bernard/Lab mix (Think really chubby Lab). Both of them have a little discomfort with the resistance of the leash, the smaller dog moreso. My large dog feels the tug, but only really notices it if it is fully extended. The smaller dog has trouble standing against the draw if it's more than about 3/4 extended. If they're running around or being slightly more active than a slow walk, they hardly notice.

Best recommendation: Get the size for whatever you think of first when thinking of your dog.

The main complaint I can see people having is the on/off function of the trigger. There's no e-brake like function. Click on, Click off. No in-between for jerk-reaction tugging on the dog.

This leash is one of the longest I could find online, and the flat design of the cord means that my Golden can't tangle it up easily. The locking mechanism is really easy to use; pull up to lock, pull again to unlock. It's a lot easier to use than the cheap dog leashes with the button on the top, and since it's not exposed it's much harder to break if I drop the leash. Another great feature is the carabiner, which now that I think about it should have been a normal feature on all leashes by now! It's very nice to be able to link it up to a branch when I'm washing the dog, or to a pole if I have to do yard work and avoid him running around too much. In short, the unit feels great in the hand, had the length I wanted and looks pretty cool. I'd recommend it to any dog owner.
