KONG® Reflective Control Grip Plus Dog Leash
I have 2 of these leashes, one for a large (45 lbs) Scottish border collie and one for a wolf/german shepherd/ chow mix (90+ lbs). Both leashes are the 1" variety and are approximately 6 years old.
The border collie simply doesn't pull and is very well trained, she has the leash only because of leash laws and frequent trips to PetSmart.
The wolf mix on the other hand has been a puller her entire life! The bone shaped super grip has come in handy so many times! She really wants to get to other dogs to play and has pulled my mother off her feet many times. This leash put an end to that! Mom can grip that rubber bone to hold the dog back easily, without the dog having a 6 foot extension to gain inertia!
One of the leashes is also occasionally used for 120+ lb shiloh shepherds, also by my tiny mother!
Highly recommend this leash!

My favorite leash
My dogs got this leash as presents in Christmas 2013 with the matching harness and collar. Besides loving the way it looks I love the control grip and that it feels safe and secure. My dogs pull and I don't have small dogs either so it's nice to walk them and not have to worry about them getting loose somehow. I have a 55lb Lab mix and a 100lb Rottweiler and haven't had any problems with the clasp or handle like other people have stated. Love this product and highly recommend it

I loved this leash when I first bought it, but after only 2 weeks the control grip broke. I went back and got the same leash because I loved it and again two weeks later the handle broke. I was so upset so I emailed Kong and they replied back saying they do not even manufacture the product, Petsmart does, so to take my complaint to them... Don't waste your money, sad to say.

Good ideas, poorly executed.
Really liked this leash when I first got it, and I'm a big fan of Kong products. It went well with his kong harness. The adjustable grip was great for traffic. But after two weeks the plastic quick release clasp broke. As others have said once the leash is wet it can become too slippery to hold. I Like the reflective strip too, but the clasp needs to be metal and the grip should be a material that isn't so slippery when wet... Returned for the Kong paracord, so far so good!
