Comments about Double Braid Nylon Line (per Foot):
I bought this line in solid black to make horse lead ropes. The line has a great feel and transmits signals to the horse very well. The smooth hand of the nylon material makes it great to work with--no need for gloves to prevent rope burns. The line ties and unties easily. I expect these lead ropes to look great for a long time.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
