Rated 2 out of 5 by StevieB Uncomfortable and is coming apart
I purchased this a few months back. After reading mixed reviews I decided to give it a go.
Cons: It takes getting used to the material and braid of the grip/handloop. When your dog is pulling it is most noticeable as it slightly cuts into your hand. There is also a grey plastic covering right below the grip that came loose and now slides up and down causing the grip to become smaller and expose the glue and stitching. I tried to upload a picture but I wasn't able.
Pros: It does have a slight spring effect which is good to reduce a hard pull, also a great sturdy clip. It is 6 foot long which is a foot longer the most leashes and reflective which is great for night use. These reasons cause me to be between a 2 and a 3 but honestly the grip is a major thing in my opinion and knocked it back.
I would not purchase this leash again unless a different padding is used for the grip area.

The plastic connector pieces had lots of rough spots on it that would cut your hand. I kept the leash and filed down the burrs. I wish I would have bought the smaller skinny leash.... way too much leash for my 65 lb dog!
So unless you have a big dog this lease is too much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ualagirl Just what we needed.
The leash is light (in both senses of the word). Being braided, it does stretch a bit, but since our pup is a puller, it has pretty much stretched out. The plastic bits near the loop and clip are pretty flimsy, and I am already planning what to do when they fall apart (duct tape?)

My bull dog/am staff pibble is 83 pounds and is overly enthusiastic about walks. This leash is flexible and easy on my hands, where a flat-leash does hurt when pups is over excited.

I like rope-like leashes as they are easy on the hands. This one was a little stiff when it came, but washed it once (after a bit of an aiming accident) and it is great. The reflective part is perfect for added security after dark.

This rope leash is much lighter than it looks. It is very sturdy and the metal hardware is very solid. The leash is somewhat reflective but I wouldn't consider it a safety item alone by itself. My large dog doesn't pull so I cannot vouch for how easy the leash is under pressure. For any even slightly well trained dog I highly recommend the leash.

Very attractive and sturdy dog leash. The clasp is well made and easy to clip on the dog's harness. The material is colorful and smooth. It has a reflector for night walking but so far I have not used the leash at night. I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RiverBlu Strong, comfortable leash
We have several of these leashes. They feel nice in hand and the best part is the reflective material. Our dogs vary in weight from 40-100 lbs and this leash is great for all. It also deters the dogs from chewing on it while walking although I don't know why. They don't seem to like the texture of the material in their mouths. Great value.
