Chuckit!® Paraflight Dog Toy
Not worth it
My dog lives for a good game of Frisbee. However, she does not like hard plastic discs. As such, I buy her floppy, cloth ones.
We have gone through a series of these that she enjoyed. They flew well and for quite a distance but we're not very durable. Seams would split or she would chew threw the fabric in a matter of weeks.
I had been told about Chuckit toys and decided to give them a try. I bought both the squirrel because I thought it would be great for nighttime play and the disc for distance throwing.
Initially, they seemed to be better products as the material seemed more durable and the squirrel had glow in the dark tabs. I was, however, sadly disappointed the moment we used them.
The squirrel barely flies at all and constantly tilts. Also, the glow in the dark patches do not retain much light which made it difficult for her to find at night.
Likewise, the disc flies at a sharp angle and has no air time. It just lands on its side and rolls away. While my dog will retrieve it, she would rather use the old raggedy discs so she can catch them in the air.
If you are reading this my suggestion would be to go with one of these toys:

Awesome durable Frisbee
Our 7 mth old blue heeler border collie cross is an absolute destructive force with any and every toy we buy but this and the chuck it ball we also bought have given him a run for his money and after a few months are still in great condition and are favorite play toys for all of us! Great quality and definitely worth the extra money spent not having to replace these toys every few weeks!!!

My two year old Lab loves it. It doesn't hurt his mouth and flies well as jumping and catching is his favorite thing. The plastic and nylon discs he would chew on and destroy quickly. We play a little catch everytime he goes out, so the discs get plenty of use. It is not indestructable, but we've had this one at least 5 months and though it is definately showing wear, it still flies. Considering how fast his other toys wind up in the garbage, this is pretty good! I've already purchased a new one for when this one done

The Chuck It! Zipflight
I have an Aussie & this is his absolute favourite toy. When new it flies far and straight, but after only about 2 weeks the inner ring stitching chronically unravels. My dog doesn't use it for anything but fetch, so I know it is not unravelling from chewing. For the price you would think they could create a way to keep the thing together longer than 2 weeks. Technically I would give this item a 3.5 stars: 4 for fun factor, but -.5 for mediocre quality of manufacture.
