The 12′ Lead Rope is designed with clear communication in mind. Made from high-quality yachting braid that transmits life and energy through the rope. We’ve weighted both ends of the lead rope with 6″ of splicing to allow for maximum feel and instantaneous release of pressure. The snap is stainless steel with a quick-release pull ring that resists getting jammed up with dirt or sand. This is a well designed piece of equipment built to last.
