This is my second Flexi leash. The first one was a slightly larger black Flexi belt leash (Medium/Large version that supports up to 72lbs). This old one started to smell quite bad after 2+ years of use (even after quite a bit of washing/cleaning), so while this leash is still working, I decided to buy a new one.

Pros:
- Durable belt and in my opinion, simply better than the retractable string leashes. On my old black leash, my nephew accidentally cut part of the belt with scissors trying to untangle it (so that he wouldn't get into trouble) but even though there's a slight slit in the belt, it's still working just fine.
- Case is durable as well - I've already dropped the leash a few times and it just has a few scratches and working very well. I once got a freebie retractable string/cord leash and it broke very quickly.
- 16 feet is plenty long for my dog who loves to sniff around. It gives him the freedom to roam but I don't have to worry about him running off.

Cons:
- The lock feature varies from Flexi leash to Flexi leash. With this red Flexi leash that I got, the lock is very tough to push up before it clicks and locks. That wasn't the case with my old Flexi leash. I ended up going to Petsmart to see how the other leashes were and it seems that the tightness/tension of the lock varies even within the same product.
- This is based on my previous experience, but the leash can start to smell over time and it seems like washing/cleaning might only do so much before the smell returns (like an old rag).

Reason for 4 Stars:
- I couldn't quite give this product 5 stars since it's not perfect. At the same time, it's a product I'll most likely buy again and worth the cost so it's certainly more than 3 stars.

I can't believe how good this product is. The push button looks like its from a batman movie. The rope is very wide and strong. My rottweiler is 130 but he is much stronger than most 160 pound dogs. He is aggressive and I need the rope to return fast and this product leaves me at ease.

We're very happy with this retractable leash. Our dog is 50 lbs and has hit the end of the retractable with considerable momentum on several occasions(more on that later). He's always been fine though since we always put his nice Ruffwear harness on him.

This was the first retractable I've ever used and it took a few walks to get used to but retractables are truly an awesome invention. It did slip out of my hand on one of the first few walks but I think that was more of me getting used to it when our dog hit the end of the leash than the products fault. To be safe, I wrapped some tennis racket grip tape around the handle and it added that extra grip we were looking for.

That's right- we're on our third one in two years! Reason being that while this leash has never caused any problems or failed on us, we feel that after so many times of hitting the end of the leash so hard (we may or may not partake in a little varmint hunting on the bike every now and then ;) it's got to be just a matter of time until the leash snaps out of the handle (again- not one of them ever has) so we figured why not have that extra piece of mind that our dog is safe and give the old ones to friends and family that aren't using the leash like we are.

Bottom line- we have put this leash to the test and it holds up well!

I had originally bought the "up to 50 lbs" retractable leash, thinking that my 55-lb dog could get away with it. Nope. The leash snapped in the middle about two months after I purchased it. So I bought this one, which is supposed to be good for "up to 75 lbs". No problems yet and I've had it for about three months now. The grip is nice and the stopper is easy to use (on both). I would highly recommend this, just get the correct weight limit for your dog.

My old Flexi leash, which I had had for 5 years or so, finally gave up on me and would no longer retract. That leash served me well for a long time, and I like the weight/feel of it, so I ordered a "newer model". I use this leash with my 85 lb. Weimaraner, and works perfectly. I like this leash better than my old one because it is a little more compact than the last one I had. I've used other retractable leashes in the past, and many of them feel heavy, the button/lock don't function properly, and they don't seem to last very long. I'm very happy with the Flexi leashes. Also, I prefer the tape style leashes vs. the cord - feels much better when your dog goes after a squirrel!

I bought my first retractable leash from Marshalls. I didn't realize there were different handle sizes, cord lengths, etc. It was a perfect leash, until my boyfriend lost it. Now, searching Amazon for a replacement, I figured I'd follow guidelines for my dog's size.

All the reviews that say the handle is too small are correct. I have large hands (I assume now that my first leash was for a "large" dog, but it worked for me and my 17lb. Cairn Terrier just fine). The size of the handle is not that bad while just holding it, but as soon as I want to flip the lock up, I have to choke up on the handle to lower my index finger or else my index finger practically seizes up while trying to lock the leash. It is EXTREMELY uncomfortable.I can't imagine why the handle size has to be relative to the cord strength. This really needs to be re-evaluated.

Also, yes, the safety collar is useless. You would think, since the handle size is relative, the collar would be too. It's way too big for my dog's head. Why isn't it adjustable?? I wouldn't even care about the collar (never used one with my last leash, no problems) but Flexi makes such a huge deal about using one you think it would work!

I guess I am going to deal with this until it breaks (or I hurt my finger!) because I don't want to spend money on another one, but it really is a poorly designed leash.
