Cadillac of Fly SwatsThis fly swat was given to me as a gift. I think it is the best I have ever used. I haven't kept score, but my kill rate has to be 95%. It is rare that a fly escapes. I think the wire design cuts through the air without making a breeze, thereby catching the fly off guard. At any rate, it is well made and very effective.
Nearly UselessI really wanted to like this swatter-- I'm generally impressed with the cliche' of quality German engineering and the notion of household objects that will outlive me. This swatter is sturdy enough, although the handle's a little short for my tastes. The problem is that the space between the wires is bigger than most flies. I've been using it for two to three weeks now, and have a kill rate of less than 50%. Much of the time the fly gets stuck briefly between the wires then buzzes loose. Usually it's stunned enough that I can chase it down again to hit it once or twice more to kill it, but that shouldn't be necessary. All told, this was a disappointment and a waste of money.

Best swatter on the market.Finely made, with good balance and heft. Would recommend drilling a hole in the handle for hanging.
