I have always used the braided barrel reins made from the parachute cords but have noticed the few that use braided leather barrel reins.
A friend of mine recently bought a pair of leather reins and I am itching to get me a pair, maybe it really has to do with the classier look of the leather reins but I like them a lot. I also like the way they feel.
Who all uses what and why?
I would love to hear any ones personal pros and cons to both.
They only negative thing I can say about the parachute cord barrel reins is that some that I have had get very slick or very sticky feeling when they get wet with water and/or sweat.
