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.
