Flexi leashes are awful. There's the pressure, the inevitable flexi-leash burn when the cord nails someone, and it is hard on the hand/easy to jerk from the hand. Have your short, regular, and long leashes of choice and use depending on occasion. I have a short for close walking for crowds and such, regular for hikes and training class, and long for training class and fun in water and such. It only takes once for that Flexi to be jerked from your hand and go skittering across the pavement. For those of us with carpal tunnel, flexi-leash handles are just painful. Period.
