"I work as a cocktail bartender in a busy hotel restaurant/club. Recently I decided to improve my bar work and put a bit of spice into it. So for the first 6 months I've been practising with empty Bacardi, Malibu, Sambuca and Smirnoff bottles. At work I only use these to "flair" with no more than 100ml of booze inside. Obviously they spin differently (harder, slower) than empty bottles. Here's my point - these Flairco bottles also spin that way, even if empty. This makes it hard for a beginner, who got used to glass bottles in the first place. I'm sure it's just a matter of practice to get used to it, but I'm just sharing my first experience with other newbies, to save them from disappointment. I know there are weight details provided on the website, but c'mon - let's be honest - who weights glass bottle before ordering flair practice bottle? Anyway the product seems to be tougher than Vin Diesel and I'm looking forward to the next few weeks, when I should got used to the new bottle. If them folks from roadhouse managed - so will I!"

"Fabulous item! Very well made and sturdy. Being plastic prevents it from breaking despite what it hits. I've gone through a table and several ornaments that have got in my way, but the bottle remains unscathed! Thank you!"
