It’s empty in here!
Heavier than the 5mtr leads (I have 2 of those), but it is very strong and stood up to being dragged along by my 30kg+ lurcher when I dropped it and he took off at speed. The outer casing did scratch but it was being dragged across a farmers recently ploughed field full of huge lumps of flint & it still works perfectly. It retracts well, and is very visible and allows the dog plenty of freedom, unlike the 5mtr - my lurcher used to get frustrated on that as he couldn't keep up with the others.
This is the second one of these leads we have had - and very good they are. The lead has been subject to sand, sea, mud and wet and has given excellent service considering that it was attached to a very energetic and strong dog.Only needed to replace it because after many years of heavy use the tape eventually started to wear through from being twisted at the attachment to the reel.
6 months and still going - strong enough for the German Shepard around 42kg in weight. Highly recommended if most of time you can't yours dog off the lead.
Bought this for my Weimeraner who suddenly started to ignore my recall and ran out of field across road. This arrived and intitally my dog was wary (he didn't like the noise it made when winding in, but now he is bounding about the field quite happily, infact I feel he is now walking much better and with less pull (he is very strong) than he does on normal lead. The tape cord is very strong and durable. A safer option to walk my dog, very happy.
Great lead let down by the one fact that our golden retriever managed to chew through the tape when we left it extended and weren't paying attention in a matter of seconds. A quick blast on the sewing machine and it was fine again though. Would happily buy another one if needed.
I have just purchased my giant flexi lead, it gives my dog the freedom to walk ahead of me,he does not pull me any more, when i am going to shorten the lead it clicks and makes him turn his head and stop.I would strongly reccomend this product to any body who does not have the confidence to let there dog off the lead.
