While the quality, thickness, and durability of each lead definitely varies, still great for the price. I have purchased multiple over time, and they feel so nice in hand unlike many typical lead lines that feel uncomfortable to hold. I use mine every day and they have been through a lot of work. When mine did eventually break down (after a lot of daily use!) all that happened to mine is the part of the rope which attaches to the snap comes undone. (Easy fix, just retie it!!) Each of mine have been very reasonable for the price and I am very happy. If you want a lead line that will last you an extremely long time, and tightly knit, this isn't the lead line for you. If you want a soft, comfy to hold lead rope, and don't mind retying it to the snap after about 3-6 months, this is for you!(depending on they amount of use and type, it could even last you a year before needing to be retied, mine just get used and abused daily and are still holding up after retying). Definitely a great lead line for a very reasonable price.
