Got this for our dog to practice recall. He is a bit over 20kg and got used to dragging this around relatively quickly. However, the sheer weight of it is problematic. We are far more fond of the fluorescent yellow lead (5m) which we could not do without. The material is excellent - no tangles!
I've very satisfied. Whether it's a dirt road, a forest or a meadow with shrubs and large stones: it doesn't snag anywhere! It doesn't even get tangled round the dog. You can easily see it. Even when its wet its easy to grip and cleaning is simple. Any mud dries quickly.
It weighs about 500g and is perfect for my 13kg dog. It doesn't float. I found the carabiner a bit small, but it seems stable. It smelled a bit like "rubber" for a while.
