    So where do you get the rubber from ? Looks like a great idea for dealing with the pesky flies. Something right out of Africa.

    Drew,
    The rubber comes from the core of large (1/2-5/8") bungee cord. I found it at a marine supply store.

    Those are too pretty to swish with. They should be for sale at Hogwarts Magic Wand Shop.

    Really nice.

    Enjoy,

    The wife walked by as I was looking at your photos and asked "what's that"... I told her it was a spaghetti lift...

    That is really cool Ted. Thanks. They remind me of some Harry Potter wands that I made my kids last Christmas

    Ted do they really work on flies?? Or is it like the "bracelet helpers"? Chuck should be all over these for his line of products.
