Pros: Light weight, flexible leather. Lines move freely through hardware on crown.
Cons: The lines cannot be removed from the crown piece, making it cumbersome to use unless you plan to have the lines attached at all times. Other brands have snaps at the crown so that the lines can be unattached in seconds. With this one, you have to remove the entire unit if you want to ride or work without the chambon after lunging. Very inconvenient.
