"Feels just like the real thing with the only differnce being its plastic. But that doesnt mean it feels cheap. It's very durable, mine have been dropped by me and my mates numerous times onto solid concrete from about five foot with little to no visible damage. The only thing I will say is that it doesn't come with a pouring spout like in the picture. But I had to pick up more anyway."

"Arrived promptly and very good service when I phoned to make an enquiry."

"I bought this so I wouldn't keep smashing bottles when flairing in my bedroom, so far it hasn't even got a scratch. Well weighted, although I have put a little water in it so I can see how much I am spilling. The short neck gives you great practice so when using other bottles it's much easier to catch! Ordered at 5pm and arrived the next day at 10am on standard delivery! Highly recommended."

"I bought this Sky Vodka Bottle knowing that it already had a great review. I have been practising and using this bottle at work, we have all concrete floors and have dropped this bottle a few times thinking it might chip or break but so far it's been good, only came away with surface scratches. I would strongly recommend to anyone looking for a perfect size and weight practise bottle 100%. I will be buying more in the future. It's ideal for beginners through to professional level and fun for all the family to have a play knowing that it won't smash."

"Loving this bottle, its seriously easy to practice with just the right amount of neck making it slightly more realistic than the flairco bottles (I would still highly recommend a flairco to start with!)
Also as far as I can tell this thing holds quite a bit of water, not a fan of plastic pourers though easily swapped out... Its definatly weighted while empty feels to me like a bottle thats about 1/3rd full which is perfect, but if your flairing at work with a full bottle... bravo? lol
This is definatly a great tool for practicing but its more of an intermediate bottle for beginners I would suggest going for the "Flairco Flair Bottle" just because its a bit more ergonomic (longer neck, smoother neck to body transition and they feel slightly satined so grip is slightly better)"

"It's a great flair bottle. I'm very happy with that. I'm sure it's gonna be really useful for my work and practise."
Adrienn Zold - Hounslow, 14th January '09
"It's great! I've dropped it on the concrete floor at least 30 times now and it's still holding strong! My only disappointment was that it can't really be filled with liquid so it can't be used for practicing throws and catches as they would have to be done with real bar bottles. Lost one star for that but I'd still recommend it!"
Sarith Pethiyagoda - Cambridgeshire, 21st December '08
Drinkstuff says: Thank you for your comments Sarith. The nature of Flair bottles is that they are weighted as if they had liquid inside them; the weight increases towards the base of the bottle. We'd recommend you continue to pratice with the flair bottle until you feel more confident.
"Absolutely brilliant piece of equipment! Weights as real SKYY bottle, behaves the same. Also express delivery (ordered Monday evening, got it Wednesday morning using normal delivery). It is definitely worth 20 quid, don't hesitate to buy it, you can't be disappointed with this one...
WARNING! Unfortunately using even the best equipment won't make your flair perfect in a minute - it takes time and patience ;) (but with this bottle it's REALLY fun!)"
Mike - Edinburgh, 12th March '08
"Really pleased with this bottle. Identical to the real thing. Its a heavy bottle so if you can flare with this, you can flare with anything!"
Alex Harvey - London, 3rd February '08
"Skyy Vodka flair bottle is great, would have been nice to have a beginners guide to using it included in the price."
Michelle - St Neots, 17th October '07
"Great weight and balance, exactly like the real 'Skyy' bottles. I'm gonna get another one."
Greg - Edinburgh, 26th December '06
"Brilliant piece of kit, a must have for any flairer in the making. Using different shaped bottles really increases you game. The skyy bottle looks real... ive already had a few yanks at work saying 'oh my god, you guys do skyy vodka??'"
Andrew Spratt - Plymouth, 21st December '06
"The Skyy Vodka flair bottle is very sturdy and is a much better representation of size/shape than the Flair Co offerings. Both are great for practising with, and man... do I need it, but for me the Skyy Vodka bottle is the one. It also comes in a cool shade of blue!"
Kev Ngan - Nottingham, 28th October '06
"fast delivery after i ordered and now just keep on throwing them into the air.

"I ordered this bottle amongst other things and just have to comment on how reliable your next day delivery is!!!! I ordered it at 3.30pm and the next morning (8am) it was at my door!"
MC - London, 2nd February '06
"Nice bottle, good weight and size. A little bit less quality than I had expected but good all the same. Blue pourer was a nice touch! Overall a nice flair bottle, as yet proving to be unbreakable."
James Garry - Leeds, 22nd January '06
"Brilliant buy, far more realistic then the flaircos in terms of being like most bottles out there. Incredibly durable, the only problem is putting it down long enough to let your bruises heal. Also since this bottle is vertually unbreakable it only means that everything else will break."
Scott Tyrer - Liverpool, 12th January '06
"My Sky Vodka flair bottle arrived on time and I was verry pleased with it. I do think that its presentation could have been improved by offering a gift wrappping service on this item. Other than that I am extremely happy with this order.
drinkstuff says: Unfortunately we can only gift-wrap items which are already in boxes or are angular-shaped. As this flair bottle fits into none of the above then it cannot be wrapped, sorry."
