Has anyone had any experience with these items as ive read they are meant to be a bit more long lasting for staffies so am going to give them a try. Just wanted to hear some other opinions on them spinner smile
Its the balls that im more interested in lasting though :)

Never used them, I prefer to buy used tennis balls as they are a lot longer lasting than the ones you buy for dogs from the pet shops.
Reubs wont fetch back any other ball apart from a tennis ball so it would be no use to us

You'll soon get the hang of it Alex. My right arm muscles is much bigger than my left due to chucking things for Ruby and Elsdon spinner smile

Have never tried the chuck it balls but they look good. I use a ball launcher - but only with branded tennis balls x

Only use branded tennis balls, you can get 2nd hand ones off eBay.

I can recommend the ones on ebay, I have had some for ages and have mainly been lost rather than destroyed.
He only has them when we are out, he does not have them in the house or I would imagine they would eventually get chewed up
