Opinions on Fly Sheets

Just wondering everybody's opinions are on fly sheets. I plan on getting my mare a fly mask with ears and making some homemade fly spray, but I was thinking of looking into a fly sheet as well. Also, what are some good lightweight, breathable, tough fly sheet brands are there under $80?

And what are your opinions and experiences with fly sheets?

Don't buy cheap. Lol. I bought some from Pleasant Ridge--can't remember the brand. Horrible, lasted a month or something. Greenhawk makes good ones BUT they used to go on sale for 50 bucks and don't seem to anymore. They are not good enough to warrant their 80 dollar price tag as far as I am concerned so, I too, am in the market for a new brand. Have heard Bucas are good?? But have never tried . . . .

The best fly sheet i've had was a saratoga one that I got on ebay back in 2004 I think. It lasted 4 years which is fantastic in my book. I think I only paid $35 for it and their regular price isn't bad - maybe $55/60?

I've also had a saxon fly sheet (torn up in a matter of hours) and a baker fly sheet (nice quality but the surcingle was torn off in 2 days and I have yet to have it fixed).

I'm debating on buying more of the saratoga ones for my horses but we'll see if the DE in their diet will help keep the flies at bay first.
