Couldn't be without one of these leads. They are lightweight, but very, very strong. Really good quality. Excellent control for my dog with not very good recall. Nice light lead (rather than material ones that get very heavy and drag when wet).
I had mine for over a year now. wery few problems with it. The line twistet a few times, but easy to fix. I use it every day. its strong and fast at roling back. I like the line not burning your skin like the thin lines on other models do. Yes its a little heavy, but hold it like a shopping bag down the side of your body then its easy to walk with for a long time. The 10 meters is nice, but i wish for a even longer one. 15 - 20 m.
This is a great lead, the neon is very bright, retraction is smooth, but it could be used as a lethal weapon! It weighs a ton! I dread to think what happens if it gets wet! I will not worry about walking late at night anymore - this would easily do damage to potential attackers! I would not buy it again, purely due to weight / size of the unit, but I guess thats what you get if you want a 10m lead....
Good lead can be short for on heel training and good to allow freedom in situations where being off lead could be dangerous and maintaining full control. Gets heavier when wet and can pick up dirt as the weight of water makes the extended tape touch the ground when raining. but overall I'm very satisfied.
Bought one of these Nov 2014 and its still going strong used twice a day with 2 GSD Bought from ZOOPLUS just ordered a second one for the day the first may let me down great lead and fantastic value from ZOOPLUS
Lead does not hold sometimes when clicking it down to a certain lead position it unclicks its self not the best I've ever had and wouldn't buy again
Brilliant lead I would recommend it, the only problem I have is the mental clip that you attach to your dogs collar wears out at the bit that spins attached to the lead. I do have a husky though and she does run until she runs out of lead and this wears it out. The lead how ever has never broken or fraid. I will be getting another one soon. ps I like the idea of the hi viz but think it will get dirty, I would have got another grey one it they were selling it.
Amazing pruduct being using over the last year still In good conditon well worth it.
I've had my flexi for years and still going strong,yes , a bit heavier but it's gotta be to withstand the strain day in day out,occasionally I wipe the tape down and leave to dry before rewinding ,not a fray in sight,now I have 2 dogs around the 40kg mark and rather than struggling with 2 I would like to think that a dual tape or thin but strong cord in one cassette would be possible as they're not boisterous but need to roam safely ,feel a bit like John Wayne with one in each hand😃
I use the 8 metre flexi lead it holds my bull mastiff, ridgeback, and bull terrier. Ive had mine for 1 year plus, never use it on the street, and is excellant for certain types of training i.e tracking, scent work etc.....
This is lead is ideal for when you are walking in unfamiliar areas. Your dog can explore but is still safe if the unexpected happens. In fact this is so good I've had to order more for the people I walk with! That's 6 big gsd's!
I brought this lead for my lively cross rottie weighing 38kg and has been very good strong I would recommend this to any one
I love this lead! I've just purchased a second one as my English Bull Terrier pup had sneakily started to nibble through the line during one 'stop', and added a short length of chain (to clip between collar and extending lead) so that if he turns to chew it now he gets chain and not line. No more getting tangled in (most often wet and muddy) training lines - this is all I need and gives him a sense of freedom when he can't go off lead or is training. It's a really good length - any shorter and I felt like I was kite surfing everytime he came to the end of it! I'm 100% confident in it holding my 30kg Bullie and it is my everyday/everytime lead. Our old Doberman now has the old 'nibbled' lead as although I felt safer ordering a new one for the Bullie, it's showing absolutely no signs of fraying through. Cannot fault this product at all.
Very impressed. Bought for our staffie, who can sometimes be reactive with new /excitable dogs & so we always keep a lead on in public parks etc. It's given us so much more freedom for her to explore,run & enjoy. It's easy to use, solid, secure, doesn't get tangled pulling out or going back into the casing & rotates at her collar for good movement / flexibility. I have to say I wouldn't trust her completely if she was at the end of the 10mtrs not to break it (due to her breed) but it's a great line in addition to being watchful, to then bring her in, if needed, easy to control & as has given the whole family more freedom. It's a little weighty but you soon get used to it.
I brought this to replace a 10m training line as I was sick and tired of manually having to coil the line up and having what ever the lead picked up on my hands. I wasn't too sure about using a retractable lead on a larger breed (GSD) but the product had well exceeding my expectations. The lead is strong, retracts well and is fairly comfortable to hold. It does what it says on the tin for a fraction of the price other places are advertising this product. Highly recommended!
This is our first experience of a flexi lead as we had been told by our trainer they were no good. I bought this to use instead of the 15m training line we were using as I was sick of washing it after every walk. It has been probably the best doggy purchase I've made so far (I've bought A LOT of things!) Pooch is an 8m Dalmatian who weighs 33kg with a less than perfect recall so 10m is a good length for him to have some freedom but still be under close supervision. He does have quite good lead manners so haven't had to deal with any real pulling but it feels sturdy enough to handle him. There are some negative reviews on the weight... I'm petite but don't find it an issue, if anything it helps balance any slight pulling from the other end. It fits nicely in my satchel. I'm just so pleased to not have to keep getting muddy rolling up his recall line every walk.
Absolutely love this lead, the best one I've ever bought. Had various flexi leads over the years and this is the toughest / strongest yet. Had mine at least a year now and its still going strong no fraying at all. Sounds quite clonky when using it but you get used to that , bit heavier than any of the others. Looking to buy another one now for my latest addition to the family.
I have this for my Dobermann/Labrador cross - he's 80lbs and very powerful, but this Flexi is very strong and I trust it 100% to withstand his pulling. The extra 10m length is great - there are times when he must be on a lead, and I am still able to throw his ball about for him and now we can walk just about anywhere without worrying about having any issues. Love it. Delivered in 2 days, very fast. Definitely worth it.
Whilst the lead is robust and allows the dog the freedom of travel, the plastic "mouth" of the handle wears away quite quickly [in less than 12 months] which in turn allows the tape to twist, thus restricting the full retraction. Flexi could do with either a redesign of this part or make it from a harder plastic.
This is my third flexi lead and by far the best. It is heavy to hold but then that helps greatly with the reeling back in if you need to quickly. I also like the fact that you can retract it right to the end in case you need to have your dog close too when other dogs or cyclists approach. Very good price and excellent value for money. If you have a dog in an area where you can't let them off lead this is perfect for you and even at full extension it is very quick to reel back in. Can't recommend enough :)
Very well made piece of kit which works very perfectly and the spring is strong enough to take up any slack in the lead - therefore it does not drag on the ground or get near the dogs feet.. Also works well as a short lead with the locking mechanism. Shame they don't make these even longer as ideally I would actually prefer a 15M version.
The lead is great very strong and well built and provides great freedom to dogs walking on the lead its a little on the heavy side but well worth it
What a fabulous product so robust and well made.German of course.
We have a newfoundland weighing 48kg at the moment! This lead is brilliant very strong and simple to use.
Just bought this for my Doberman and it's brilliant , he's got freedom to run but still in control , also feels a very strong lead and have great confidence it will stop him :-) highly recommend
Have just purchased this lead for my English Setter. He does not pull so badly because he has more freedom and he enjoys his walks more, I still have control over him and I enjoy our walks more. One of the best buys I have made. Thoroughly recommend it.
The 10m flexi is a brilliant piece of kit. It allows me to walk my 33kg Alt Deutsche Shaferhund in both woodland and fields without the worry of him running off after the wild life. The 10m length gives Ulf Jäger the freedom he craves without my loosing control of him. The sense of freedom also leads to a relaxed and enjoyable walk. With the lead retracted the lead is just as easy to use when walking to heel along city streets. The lead is easy to clean which is a real benefit with the current weather conditions.
My staffie loves it :) best thing i ever did for her was this lead, giving her plenty of running room.
ONLY JUST RECEIVED THIS BUT LOOKS REALLY STRONG. TOOK MY DOG OUT STRAIGHT AWAY AND IT WAS GREAT, HE COULD RUN FREE AND I KNEW I HAD CONTROL OF HIM I LIKE HOW THE LEAD RUNS BACK FREELY AND CAN NOT TWIST AND GET JAMMED. I WAS ALWAYS WORRIED WITH MY OTHER LEAD THAT IT WOULD SNAP WHEN THE DOG PULLED. WITH THIS LEAD I FEEL MORE CONFIDENT. ALSO THANKS FOR THE VERY SPEEDY SERVICE.
Me and my Boxer love this lead. My boxer is a bit of a windup merchant with other dogs, when were out and about so when i need to put him on the lead, he stills has a lot of moving and running around with the 10 m Flexi lead.
I got this Flexi lead because I can't normally let my dog off the lead and long, non-retractable leads are not practical in busy streets or roads. I always thought retractable leads were dangerous and had a vision of elderly ladies being dragged along by their poodles. But now I know better. This retractable lead has a wide tape-style lead and is very robust. My female Husky (20kg and a strong pull) enjoys this increased freedom. She is much more relaxed when running around and I have great control even if the lead is fully extended. I don't have to yank her back. The lead retracts fairly quietly and quite quickly. The handle seems rather large but the ergonomic grip is great to hold, even though it weights 860g. You hardly notice it. I would definitely recommend this Flexi dog lead.
Maximum control for large dogs that can not be let off the leash. Once you get used to handling the large flexi-leashes, the 10m rope is a great product.
This lead was given to me. I agree with the previous comment that this is the "Mercedes" of flexi-leashes. Before this I used the Flexi Comfort Compact 3-5m tape-style lead with leather trim. The Giant Professional weights exactly 863g (digital scale) and the Comfort Compact 3 weights 546g, but this is not necessarily an advantage. I hardly noticed the difference in weight when switching to the 10 metre lead. If you already use a Flexi for large dogs you will get used to it very quickly. There are often negative comments about the weight, suggesting that one should carry 1 litre of milk on a walk to get a sense of how it feels with the 10-meter line. This is absolute nonsense. The handles of both leads in comparison: The middle part (where about middle + ring fingers wrap around the handle) of both handles measure exactly 3 cm in width. At the bottom of the handle (beyond the point where the little finger encircles the handle) there is a difference of 0.5 cm. This means that the 10m Flexi is slightly narrower at this point. I personally feel that the Comfort Compact 3 is more comfortable to hold. The tape width of the Comfort Compact 3 is 1.8 cm, which makes it a little wider than the Giant Professional at 1.6 cm. The Comfort Compact 3 snap hook is covered in leather, whereas the Giant Professional snap hook is covered in plastic. It should be obvious that the rolling resistance and the entire casing of the 10m Flexi are both bigger than the 5m Flexi. The 10 metres need to be stored somewhere. I would definitely recommend the Flexi Giant Professional retractable dog lead to anyone who wants give his dog the maximum on controlled freedom. I would not want to miss it as it is a great way to walk the dog.
This addition to the Flexi product range is awesome. The 10m Flexi lead is perfect for dogs which extend the 8m lead fully. It means your dog can run around and sniff at things without you losing control of your pet. The only disadvantage is the weight. I found the weight of the 10m lead very pleasant as it provides a counter-balance to the rolling resistance. You hardly notice if the lead is rolling in or out. The automatic stop buttons are a little narrower than previous Flexi leads but just as easy to use. The tape-style lead is less elastic than a cord-style but this gives you more control despite the length. That said, some people cannot control their dogs, whether they are on a 10m or a 2m lead. This lead is called "professional" and deserves that name. All in all a "Mercedes" of a dog lead
This 10 metre lead is great, but the actual lead is very stiff and the larynx of the dog is under a constant pressure. Also the dog can damage its neck vertebrae if it is running fast while the lead is extending and it suddenly gets to the end of the 10 metres. Generally a good lead, but there is no mention that you should only use this lead with a harness and not with a collar.
We - me and my dog (Labrador Retriever) are really excited about this lead. It is a bit heavier, but the quality is great! You can use it to teach your dog to walk beside you and much more! We even use the lead when bike riding (after practising a bit first). Even if my dog is playing in fields, there are always lanes and roads to cross so I personally prefer to have my dog on a lead. And thanks to this great lead my lovely Peppsy still has plenty of freedom! The lead is very robust, and retracts really well... I would recommend this lead to anyone! It makes walking your dog so much fun, but more importantly your dog will enjoy it too. You can even play ball. Peppsy loves to play and she can do this even when on the lead. Hi to all dogs and dogs lovers
Maximum freedom for large dogs which have to stay on the lead. It took some getting used to, but the 10m Flexi lead is a great product. In contrast to other leads it does not continuously trail "in the dirt". And retractable leads don't make your dog pull more! This outdated, but common belief is simply wrong!
