"Just received this swatter. I was impressed with the quality of the leather and the heavy metal material. I love the fact that it was made here in the USA! I may have paid a little more but I will never buy a plastic fly swatter again!"

"I have my own and also one I personally bought for work. I will not use the plastic ones that get frail, bent, and are so light that they cannot kill a gnat! As my children leave home and set up their own homes, I buy them their own leather swatter. It is a great housewarming gift."

"These last SO much longer than the cheap plastic ones available out there. They also work well at killing the flies of which we have plenty! SO don't hesitate in buying some for fly season."

"Great fly swatter, just make sure you choke up a bit on the handle. If you hold it at the very end where the loop is it will bend, but if you hold it at the bottom of the twisted section it will not bend."

"I was getting so annoyed with all of the plastic and mesh fly swatters on the market and how quickly they fell apart. Then I discovered Lehman's leather fly swatter. 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!"

"I don't know what kind of handles some reviewers got on their swatters that they're bending, but the one we have is heavy duty stuff. It's thick and strong, far sturdier than the handles on the plastic swatters we were using. Maybe these folks don't know their own strength! This fly swatter is well made out of quality material. It is meant to last for years."

"I rate this 5 lamps. After having gone through many plastic swatters I heard about your leather ones and immediately ordered 2 of them. They have already worked very well and am hoping they last quite a few years like the old wire ones did. Thanks very much Lehmans"

"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 leather swatter is extremely effective at landing a killing blow with only low velocity smacks. (Indeed, the only reason this is not a 5-star rating is that the wire handle is a little too ductile for the weight of the leather, and if you get carried away and swing hard the handle bends all out of shape. Having said that, this is the ne plus ultra of flay swatters. The heavy weight leaher even works using the *edge* of the swatter in a tight space."

"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."

"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. "

"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."
