Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4
Rated 2 out of 5 by GoldenDad Has shortcomings.
I've had it for 6 weeks.
The length is good. You have to be careful when you put it away and when you take it out or it will be a tangled mess when you start to use it the next time.
After 6 weeks it has frayed to the point that I will have to replace it soon.
It does get wet when there is dew on the grass or when it is raining.
Biggest drawback is it gives bad rope burns, so you have to be careful that it doesn't rub your arm/leg/etc. as the dog runs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CKennedy Love it!
I got this for my dog so he could run around "free" in the field next to our condo. It gives me the ability to let him stretch his legs while still having control over him so he doesn't stray too far. I've also used it to train him to come when called. My husband plans to take him hunting this fall and we're hoping that through the aid of this product he'll be trained enough to stay close and return when called. It's not pretty but that's not the purpose of this product anyhow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ladytheferret Not bad but not great
Its nothing special. Works well for my 45lb australian cattle dog who already has quite a bit of come and distance training so she rarely pulls. May not be strong enough for a medium or larger dog who pulls hard. Very light weight. Doesnt get wet and gross like my old nylon one.
Pros: Color, light weight, good length, water proof, price
Cons: May not be sturdy enough for a larger dog or a dog who pulls (if your dog is strong and pulls alot consider getting a thicker check cord), handle is not overly comfortable (I covered mine in some duck tape)
Over all good buy for a person with a new puppy, a small dog, or a dog who needs to be on leash outside but doesnt pull too hard.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GSPmama Perfect its purpose
Stopped by Petsmart this morning on the way to the lake to pick up the 20 ft version of this one. It was easy to use and didn't get tangled while teaching my 4 month old GSP to swim and fetch in the water. It held up pretty well against the rocks and sand on the shore. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for an easy way to keep up with your pup in the water just in case something happens.
