I don't use one, have never, nor do I plan to use one. I see way to many people using them to walk their (generally small) dogs, and have their dog be out 16 feet in front of them. I don't really see the appeal to using them in the city, as I would not like my dog to be that far in front of me with all the cars and people.

I do see the appeal to using one in a big field on a dog that doesn't have a great recall, as you could practice recalls without worrying about tripping them up with a long line, but currently I use my long line with no issues.

I too have heard some pretty scary horror stories about them, ranging from cutting your skin or your dogs to having your dog go around the corner before you get there and having the dog be attacked.
