LEATHER FLY SWATTER DESCRIPTION
"My dad did not rest until I got a couple of these. They are by far the heaviest duty fly swatters anywhere!" --A Satisfied Lehman's Customer

"This thing is made to work well and last a long time – the way things should be made. I will never buy another plastic or mesh fly swatter. In fact, the way the leather one is holding up, I may never buy any fly swatter again!" --A Satisfied Lehman's Customer

"While the leather is top-quality, the wire handle is too soft/weak. When you swing the flyswatter, the metal handle bends backwards. If you kill a fly with this thing it will be due more to luck than skill. A strong, non-bending handle would make this a keeper. "

"Like others have said, the handle is to flimsy to work, and the leather/swatter part left black marks all over my walls. Too bad I bought 2."

"Had good hopes for this fly swatter. The leather part is fantastic, but the wire handle is super flimsy. You go to swat it, and the handle bends over, negating the action and usefulness of the item. Wish they'd make it with a stronger non-bendy handle."

"Leather swatter is great. Handle is too short and too flimsy. The handle bent the first time it was used. You'll need to build a new handle to use effectively. Would not recommend."

"I love this fly swatter and it did last a long time. I have to agree with others about the wire. Considering how durable the leather swatter is, the wire is flimsy. They could easily make this better by using stronger wire. Apparently, it used to be better quality. I'm going to order a couple more. I will update my review (if it's possible) after I try the new one. $5 for a swatter plus shipping, you would expect it to not be flimsy."

"i must have bought 5 of these a few years back. best fly swatter i ever used but.... every swat i take bends the handle. the handles are just not strong enough. i constantly have to bend them back. the leather looks good but they wire looks like it is a hundred years old. handle needs to be improved to so this swatter would be as good as it should"

"The leather swatter lasts but the handle doesn't. Mine got all bent out of shape from use last summer."

"Nice looking and gives a good whack, BUT the handles could be made of a heavier (thicker?) wire so it doesn't collapse when you're going after more than one fly. Maybe I should only give them a three lanterns. Ah, well, "MN nice""

"The fly swatter is much better than the plastic ones, but the wire handle is flimsy. It has lasted 5 years and hopefully the handle will last another five because the leather part will."
