I used to be really opposed to these sorts of leads, but some dogs do ned them to get enough exercise and it works really well with mine. The yellow/neon allows other to see she on the Flexi lead and they most often keep away or at least call their dogs. It's a good length at 8m and it's not heavy, is easy to hold. The only thing I don't like (hence 4 stars) is the size of the clip on the end. It's very small. I worry about how robust it is. Even a smaller Flexi I have has a bigger clip.
