I feel like if that leash wraps around your ankle and you get dragged your foot could come off clean :/

haha. #futuressuck
First off, yes, it's definitely too expensive for a leash. But I'm a "gear" guy, so I had to try it. I will say that I was impressed. It does what it says: lighter weight, comfortable cuff, seems to have less drag, and the main benefit- it doesn't tangle like the standard leash. As someone who keeps a leash thrown in the back of my car, the old one would get really twisted/coiled, and tangle every session. So, it's a winner in my book. If you are due for a new leash anyway, give it a shot.

If they would invent a leash that doesn't end up underfoot during late takeoffs I'd buy it.

SAVE YOUR MONEY - DO NOT BUY.

I've had my freedom leash for less than one month and used it about 12-15 sessions total. Today, as I'm pulling out the back of a head high closeout, I feel the dreaded pop. I literally came up and whispered, "You're fooking kidding me." Sure enough, leash snapped at the rail saver. Luckily the board popped up next to me so I grabbed it. Waves were firing and it's 20+ minutes round trip to the car and back up leash so I had to MacGuyver. Using the loose nylon weaving, I tied a few knots on to my leash string so I could stay out. What a disappointment. A regular comp leash usually lasts me at least 6 months and most times up to a year. This premium upgrade $45 leash didn't even last one month. FCS should be embarrassed by this piece of shit.
