While it is not my favorite, it was definitely useful in training classes when working on recall. I actually despize the use of flexi's by the general public (esp the people bringing their little ankle biters into the vet office where I work). That being said, if you are responsible with a flexi, it is a great leash. I have a 26 foot, cord (not the easily breakable tape) style for up to 110 pounds available. It is much too cumbersome and heavy as my arthritis is getting worse. Please PM me if interested.
