Its the worst leash I have ever owned. Still gets tangled around my feet.

I bought one and it did the stretch out thing where it seems like the inner urethane cord pulls out of the rail saver but is still connected by the outer cord that is now hollow. Returned it and the same thing happened again. Also the rail saver plastic piece is enormous and I can feel its drag when I'm paddling. Seems like zero R&D went into this piece of poop.

Sounds like exactly what happened to mine.


The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.

Same. Loved the idea of a lighter thinner leash, but appears to be Form over Function. They certainly won't get many repeat buyers.
At least they replaced yours once!

They've said they'll replace my second Freedom leash that got stretched. I've told them I just want one of the original leashes. Freedom leashes are junk, junk, junk!

They now serve as two mini washing lines on my terrace...

That was the worst part about my experience with the leash. Now I just have this pile of plastic with no real use. I don't want to throw it in the trash, so it was my dogs toy for awhile. Now I use it to pull plants / trees in my yard in the right direction.
