Well, everyone is using big brands and fancy ones...
until last month, i was using (no brand) a rope, similar to rock climbing ones with bolt clip on one end and loop on other end, 6 feet long.
Right now i am using same type of rope but 1 inch or more at diameter with bolt clip at one end and loop at another end.
We do not do agility or any kinds of sports here, rather than that i use this leash for everything, walking, running, training
A picture is attached, it may clear up what i am trying to say.

I use their fast bungee. Quality product for sure. I don't have any of their harness products, but I know a couple of people that use them and like them.

That is Great to hear. I have a Ray Allen Harness that I used with Sampson. I am very pleased with the way it has held up. I will probably purchase a Fast Bungee and their Cobra Collar for Ziggy.

Waaaayyy back when, I expressed a preference for nylon.

Well, fast-forward some months and we're now solidly ensconced in the "fancy braided leather show lead" category.

Pongu's show lead is hilariously too-thick latigo because I was fixed on having these two particular colors and they were only available in thick latigo so that's what we got. It's broken in now, though, and fairly comfortable to use, and actually comes in handy when I get distracted and fumble-fingered in the ring (I tried the thin leather show lead, dropped it a couple of times, and decided I was done with that for the time being)... but the real reason is that I liked the colors.

This past weekend I also picked up a nice tan-and-azure kangaroo leather slip lead for Crookytail's nonexistent agility career, but who knows if that one will ever see use.

Bud talked me out of the lockjaw for the long line I bought the 1/2 inch for lighter weight........but my main application is for control in urban type scenarios....they do slide through the brush nicely and the minimalist loop should be good for that as well.

I did get it for the 4 foot. LOL the lead I lost was clipped to the ring and around my shoulder and I STILL lost it.

Just bought one of the soft leather leads from Leatherleashstore.com Very pleased with it. However, going to have to purchase another as the one I bought is 4' and we need 6' for rally.

Plus holding four nylon leashes on a walk just feels icky. Im too young for arthritis but my knuckles hurt for some reason with nylon. Four well-broken leather leashes doesn't leave my hand sore afterwards. I have sensitive totally non-manly artist hands, though! Lol

Of course nylon is tops for dock diving/beach-going.
I have issues with nylon as well, I use leather although now I want to look into biothane. Hubs swears by nylon and hates leather. Good. he leaves my stuff alone.
