They look well made, but of course I have not used them yet. I want to give them a gifts.

The Real Thing
Reviewed By:   (Corpus Christi, TX) 
We LOVE LOVE LOVE this fly swatter. The unbelievable junk they pass off as fly swatters nowadays in all department stores is a joke. These flyswatters are built durably and they WORK, the flies cannot feel the swatter coming.

If It Makes Mom Happy...
Reviewed By:   (Selinsgrove, PA) 
I gave my dad a copy of the Garrett Wade catalog a while ago because I thought he'd enjoy looking through the tools and wouldn't you know my mother got a hold of it and fell in love with these old-timey fly swatters. I was pretty skeptical but I ordered her two for Mother's Day because she so rarely wants something eccentric like this. She loves them because they remind of her of the kind they had when she was a kid (she's only 52 so I'm not sure why she thinks she grew up in the Depression). I have to admit that they do look a heck of a lot cooler than the plastic ones and they appear to be well made. However, I wouldn't want one myself because you can't easily hang them on a hook and I don't want something with bug guts on it lying around. I haven't seen them in action but I also wonder about how well they'll work because they don't seem to have the flexibility of the plastic ones. Lastly, the price was an issue for me. At first, I didn't think it was too high because it's only $8 per swatter. But Mom wanted one for inside and one for out on the porch. Then the shipping was $9.50 which seemed really steep for two items that are as light as feathers. So at the end of the day, I paid $26 for two fly swatters that may or may not work as well as the 99 cent ones at the grocery store.

Not Good
Reviewed By:   (Atlanta, GA) 
I am baffled by all the glowing reviews. I bought 5. Two fell apart almost immediately. The other 3 are fine as deck decoration/conversation pieces, but I'm back to USING the plastic swatters I've had for years.

These were a HIT

These flyswatters brought back a lot of memories for my father-in-law. He can't wait until spring time to get swatting. Very good quality.
