Default Looking for a New Collar.

My dog hod this collar for about 2 years:

It was in black and had rivets instead of spikes. His constant pulling eventually broke when my stepdad was walking him (or maybe the other way around :P).

So he ran out and bought his this:


Since day one I didn't like his new collar. I don't like the design and I really don't like the plastic buckle. I'm always worried that it will break. I think that he has broken enough collars in the past that my concern has some merit.
The one thing I like about this collar is the width. You may not be able to tell form the picture but it's at least 1.5 inches, if not 2 inches wide.

(I use a prong and choke combo when I take him on walks, but I hope to replace those with a flat collar some day, preferably soon. But around the yard and during a few other occasions, he wears a flat.)

I've been searching around and I have found a few that I like, but they're expensive .

I like this one because it will match the LLC harness that I'm eagerly awaiting. (It looks like the edges may be rough and jagged. The fabric that they loop through the buckle and stitch down to the rest of the collar looks a little short imo.)

I like how this one puts webbings between the buckle and the dog's neck. I also like how the V-Ring isn't attached to the actual buckle. It also has a separate loop for tags and whatnot.

I like the nylon because it doesn't stretch and I feel like it will hold up better during the winter than a leather collar. I probably won't ever have to worry about the buckle or stitching coming apart. The collar to end all collars?

I just feel like I may be feeding into some of the cobra buckle hype.
+ they look cool.

Am I going insane?
