[quote="Arcsrule"]the reel leash also breaks quite easily. the strap seems to snap too easily. and the reel leash does not stop the spring back of the board all the time. it is not fool proof at all. But, it is the best leash around. i too would go for the pet leash if i didn't already have thereel leash.[/quote]
They used to break easily, now we hardly ever get one back and even if we do, the user always knows why it broke!
All the internal parts can be replaced now, but we can even fix the old ones.
If it was made to be totally unbreakable then your board of you will break.
If you use it all the time you must use a helmet, they will not stop board recoil totally but they do reduce it.
We sell them with confidence that they are the best product for the purpose, on the market.
I still have one on my harness, but often only clip it to my board if I crash the kite.
