KONG® Reflective Control Grip Plus Dog Leash
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!

Broke within a week.
I was very excited about this leash. Short, heavy duty, and great handle and grip. Perfect for a dog who is learning to master the loose leash. We have three leashes we use, and this is my favourite.
Yesterday, my 5-day old leash broke. The end connector for the quick release buckle snapped. It looks like a design flaw to me, because looking at how it's made, I can't be the first who's had this problem.
I really expected more from Kong.

This leash was given as a holiday gift and the owner is thrilled with it. It wasn't the exact one that he wanted; but he loves it. Multipurpose and can be secured to a tree for his dog.

Too much wrong
Everything that appealed to me when ordering this leash is now what I don't like. As noted by others, the leash is slick when it gets wet, so the grip slips and it is hard to hold on to the leash. The quick snap means that there is a clasp right at my knuckle which ended up being bruised after the first day from my dog pulling.
